Hi Bernhard,

If the data is meant to be read by machines more so than humans, then the UNIX epoch value is much easier to work with, in basically all programming languages:


A UNIX epoch value is also unambiguously UTC timezone, whereas a human-readable date might be misinterpreted to mean a local time.
