This is the crux of it. Good markup should be semantic, so by nesting the unitdate one should be able to infer that it's considered an integral part of the title. (Or vice versa.) It's never a good idea to base markup practice on the constraints of a particular technology.

About 12-15 years ago, the question was a point of disagreement between the US and UK EAD communities. Both are legal in EAD; has a general consensus appeared about which is the better way to look at dates?
