[rfc-i] date-less citations

Hi there,

is there an agreement about how to reference things that have no 
publiccation date (for whatever reason)?

xml2rfc doesn't allow skipping <date>, but it does allow leaving out all 
attributes, and this generates a date-less reference entry.

However, recently, I have seen many documents saying "n.d.", which I 
believe originates from the use of kramdown-rfc2629 (abusing the date 
element, FWIW).

Any opinions about what is the better choice?

Best regards, Julian
