Date and DateTime formats

In the past we have been tied up trying to specify formats of the ISO 8601 date format to standardise the way publishers report dates and times. In practice the schema constraints imposed by xsd:date and xsd:datetime do all that IATI requires. By changing our guidance to specify that this is all that is required, dates and times can be validated by the schema.
