Closes #5 from rdblue/PARQUET-12-add-new-type-docs and squashes the following commits:

 A `SchemaElement` with the `DECIMAL` `ConvertedType` must also have both
 `scale` and `precision` fields set, even if scale is 0 by default.
+
+## Date/Time Types
+
+### DATE
+
+`DATE` is used to for a logical date type, without a time of day. It must
+annotate an `int32` that stores the number of days from the Unix epoch, 1
+January 1970.
+
+### TIME_MILLIS
+
+`TIME_MILLIS` is used for a logical time type, without a date. It must annotate
+an `int32` that stores the number of milliseconds after midnight.
+
+### TIMESTAMP_MILLIS
+
+`TIMESTAMP_MILLIS` is used for a combined logical date and time type. It must
+annotate an `int64` that stores the number of milliseconds from the Unix epoch,
+00:00:00.000 on 1 January 1970, UTC.
+
+### INTERVAL
+
+`INTERVAL` is used for an interval of time. It must annotate a
+`fixed_len_byte_array` of length 12. This array stores three little-endian
+unsigned integers that represent durations at different granularities of time.
+The first stores a number in months, the second stores a number in days, and
+the third stores a number in milliseconds. This representation is independent
+of any particular timezone or date.
+
+Each component in this representation is independent of the others. For
+example, there is no requirement that a large number of days should be
+expressed as a mix of months and days because there is not a constant
+conversion from days to months.
+
+## Embedded Types
+
+### JSON
+
+`JSON` is used for an embedded JSON document. It must annotate a `binary`
+primitive type. The `binary` data is interpreted as a UTF-8 encoded character
+string of valid JSON as defined by the [JSON specification][json-spec]
