[thredds] Aggregations and time in JoinNew


My apologies if there is a better place to post questions about NCML...

I've been working on the automatic generations of aggregations using NCML. That is, using software to crawl servers and build/write NCML files that form aggregations of files on the crawled servers.

Question: Is there consensus on the best way to represent time (assuming it is the new dimension) in a JoinNew aggregation?

Background: I have the code working and it's currently using ISO 8601 to represent time, although I can easily change that. This is work that comes from crawling to build metadata records for dataset catalogs - aggregations fit into this because they are an effective way to mitigate some problems with very large metadata records choking catalog software (and some other semantic issues regarding 'inventories').
