--- then we should go back through the examples and try to figure out
what each 'date' really is. Having a field called 'date' (IMHO) is as
useful as having a property called 'string' the semantics behind that
are not very useful.

I think i understand why you would want to be vauge about 'date', but
the problem then becomes, what does that map to in various formats?
and what if a format has both 'published' and 'created' dates what
does class="date" mean?
