I am sure that that quote would have been taken out of context though.

I don't see so, calling the class "date" is the only proper name for it.
Other applications are going to break regardless of in which version
5.1.0/5.1.1 we would have introduced it. We thought it was better to do
it in 5.1.0 instead, and unfortunately it made it into a too late
release candidate.
