This is actually a point of discussion I had with Xavier (well, discussion,
he mentioned it before he went away :). You can change the date of the
document when you fix a stupid typo without auditing the rest of the
document for its accuracy. That might result in a inaccurate document 
with a recent date.

Or you can resist the temptation of changing the date, yielding a perhaps
perfectly accurate and well-written document with an old date.

Wkr,
