Various protocols rely on the definition of a time stamp type,
Stamp, compatible with the
suggested Preserves convention for
dates and times.
Stamp = <rfc3339 @value string> .
From the Preserves convention document:
Dates, times, moments, and timestamps can be represented with a Record with label
rfc3339having a single field, a
String, which MUST conform to one of the
date-timeproductions of section 5.6 of RFC 3339. (In
date-time, “T” and “Z” MUST be upper-case and “T” MUST be used; a space separating the
full-timeMUST NOT be used.)
