[osis-core] div type="date"

I think it would be nice to define as "canonical" at least one pair or
values (morning/evening, AM/PM, etc...). If I had to pick only one I
would probably go with AM/PM (01.01.AM and 01.01.PM) and make
(01.01!Morning/01.01!Evening and 01.01!Sunrise/01.01!Sunset) local
extensions. The idea being to encourage consistency.
Naturally it would be possible for anyone to use 01.01!Matins but I
think they might be more of a special case.
Question: How should we identify this "reference system" we are
constructing? In the following example of what seems like a good idea
to me, with the "reference system" being "Calendar"
<osisText osisWorkID="SpurgenMorningAndEvening" osisWorkRef="bible">
<title>Morning and Evening</title>
<div type="dailyReading" osisID="01.01.AM">
Is the above structure consistent with what everyone is thinking?
It would seem that there should be a difference between a generic day of
the year (01.01) and specific dates (2003.5.30)
