The editor's copy of the spec says in 
<draft-iab-rfcv3-preptool-latest.html#rfc.section.5>:

"Normalize the values of “month” attributes in all <date> elements to 
numeric values."

Yet <draft-iab-xml2rfc-03.html#element.date> says:

"The date information can have prose text for the month or year. For 
example, vagu"e dates (year="ca. 2000"), date ranges (year="2012-2013"), 
non-specific months (month="Second quarter") and so on are allowed."

...so I don't see how rewriting month attributes would be always possible.

Best regards, Julian
