This removes the documented use of this macro. It was non-functional. Given the nature of the definition of the non-well defined date for certificates, it may be wise not to use a special macro at all. The reason is that the no-well defined date is a real date (~year 9999), and any approximation with seconds will be unstable due to irregular leap seconds.
