Yes, I have an application. It is using BinaryTime in the content, and the desire is to use the same date/time format throughout the application.

The application itself is not ready for release to the IETF, and it may never be released to the IETF. However, please take a look at draft-housley-cms-fw-wrap. This has many properties in common with the application that is not yet ready for release. Basically, a content type is defined, and the use of CMS to protect that content type is specified. S/MIME is not used, only CMS.

application at all at hand? if so, what is the experiment?

The proposed text concerns a a signing-time attribute.
