Well, the objects I'm dealing with CAN have time-of-day information, but
mostly they do not, and this is not known until run-time. So, for the sake
of a common interface, I want to use time, but simply ignore the time-of-day
part when it is not needed.

Yes the special date values don't appear to be regarded as "special" when
used with the counted representation. They just get combined into the single
counted value, and their special-ness is lost.
