reusing the bio vocab Libby mentioned, this could be narrowed down to

 <bio:event>
   <bio:Birth>
      <??:year/>
      <??:month/>
      <??:day/>
   </bio:Birth>
 </bio:event>

with the ?? terms possibly being quite general (i.e. there is
no need for them to be restricted to bio stuff). does anybody
know if those already exist?
