The power of some of the other formulas in ISO 8601 is that you don't  
introduce false levels of precision.  The "October 2009" issue of a  
magazine is precisely tagged as "200910" or "2009-10" .  It doesn't  
have a day, hour or minute.  Most books come with a copyright year: no  
month, no day ...

In the library/book/periodical world these are a common set of  
expectations.
