Pure dates are generally not a problem, as long as you (or the coder from whose output you are getting the date) don't/didn't do something very stupid. Even here, however, timezone issues can cause problems. I once had an issue which resulted from the author of the firmware of a device I was getting data from recording what should have been a pure (midnight) datestamp as the corresponding local datetime. Since I am in the GMT-5 timezone, midnight on April 4 became 7 pm on April 3!

Trying to compare datetimes for simultaneity, however, is almost always a severe PITA, when the source clocks are not both perfectly synchronized and using the same basic internal representation for clock time.
