Seems we were in agreement with you here that something other than the date 
could be used.

I think Michael is just being difficult here.  The date really doesn't help 
because on Today I could check out a tag from 4 years ago and make it a 
snapshot.  No more meaning full than an svn revision number, in fact, LESS 
meaning full.

I'd fully support a draft to amend our guidelines around the snapshot stuff to 
be more flexible for things other than date.
