Subject: [boost] [chrono/date] date conversion and arithmetic with unvalidated dates

Note that N3344 suggest only day arithmetic for a day representation
(which is always valid) and suggest only only a date representation.

Could we apply arithmetic operations on a unvalidated date (without
striving on UB)?
e.g. day arithmetic on a ymd_date

ymd_date d1(year(2013), may, day(66));
ymd_date d2 = d1 + day(1);

If defined, which must be the value of d2?

Could we convert a date representation to another one if the source date
is unvalidated (without striving on UB)? e.g. ymd_date -> days_date

ymd_date d1(year(2013), may, day(66));
days_date d2 = d1;

If defined, which must be the value of d2?
