Oh, so I tried to fix a non-existing problem. ;-)
I suppose it's okay if I change the example to use "YYYY-MM-DD"

-	<abbr class="dtstart" title="20051005">October 5</abbr>-	+	<abbr
class="dtstart" title="2005-10-05">October 5</abbr>-	
-	<abbr class="dtend" title="20051007">7</abbr>,	
+	<abbr class="dtend" title="2005-10-07">7</abbr>,

For the reasons stated in my previous email I've added
"The notation YYYY-MM-DD should be used instead of YYYYMMDD for better
readability." to note 4 of "1.5 Example".
