no -- I don't think so -- just a bunch of discussion on the list. I was
starting down the path of a "proper" NEP, etc, but I think that:

a) Datetime64 is still "officially" experimental, so we can change things
more rapidly than we might otherwise.

b) It's really pretty broken as it is.

I'll see if I can open an issue for the "easy" fix.
