Well, I still don't get it

Not a valid date for who? Some back-end processing the xml afterwards?

I've just done a small test which shows cforms is perfectly happy to
bind to some <date /> or <date></date> in the xml...

I also find no references to this mentioned org.w3c.util.DateParser in
the cocoon code-base, I couldn't even find it in any of the jars we
distribute...  (actually outside cocoon the only references I've found
to it so far are jigsaw and some css-validator)

As things stand I can't help getting more and more
- unsure about what the actual motivation for this change was,
- convinced that the chosen resolution which makes fb:value not maintain
the xml structure is actually way too drastic
- close to doubting we should even support this date-issue
