Rather than debate, why don't we just ask Bob for more information
about what he's trying to do?
Bob: can you give us some more examples of what you'd like to do, not
just request a specific technique?

As far as periodicals, we already have hAtom
<http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom> which includes mandatory dates.
Blogs and articles, and other similar content, is can be marked up
using hatom.

As far as screen readers go: can anyone name some of the "more
popular" screen readers so we can involve the authors in the semantic
markup dialogue?
