I think "m" here is no more ambiguous than "M" in the ISO8601. i.e. if  
"m" is contained by "time", then it means minute(s) and if "m" is  
contained by "date", it means month(s).

Can someone remind me / point me to the rationale behind the principle  
that the meaning of a classname cannot be dependent of the containing
