I'd disagree with this.  16:03 in the context of your original page
*will* refer to 16:03 on a specific day (I'm finding it hard to think
of a non-contrived example where it wouldn't) - it's just abbreviated
to 16:03. A human would gather that information from context but it's
more explicit in the machine-readable version.
