I also vote for leaving it date-published. Though not really arguing  
against Tim's reasons, there are cases in which citations can have a  
date published and a date visited or accessed. When citing websites  
and web pages, for instance, some citation formats display date  
published and date visited, when that information is available. More  
often than not, citations for websites and web pages ask for date  
visited instead of date published.

That said, should there also be a date-accessed or date-visited value  
for hCite?
