Section 3.2.3 says:
It should say:
The Z for UTC seems mandatory, per section 2.4 (in XML schema, it is optional http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/#date ). Since <renew> is the only command with date (and not date-times), one may think dates are not forced to have a trailing Z but it is not mentioned in the RFC.
Detected by Kim-Minh Kaplan at AFNIC.
The RFC could be clearer, but it is consistent that the "Z" is required in date-time but not on date only.
