ISO 8601 Data elements and interchange formats — Information
interchange — Representation of dates and times
P is the duration designator (historically called "period") placed at
the start of the duration representation.
D is the day designator that follows the value for the number of days.
So YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss/P1D is the period of one day starting from

By "00:00:00" do you mean <today's date> 00:00:00? I like that, as it
doesn't broadcast detailed time management in the signature
timestamps. Somebody in a time zone an hour behind the signer's might
see <yesterday's date> 23:00:00, but that doesn't really matter IMHO.
The creation time of the key as the signature timestamp looks a good
option to me; simple and fairly obviously fake.

The user could indicate such with signature notations if they wished.
"timestamp-interval at example.com = P1D" would seem to fit the
"00:00:00" option. Maybe something like
"fake-timestamp at example.com = key creation time" for that option. Or
whatever they wanted, of course...
