I also think that the burden caused by the options 1 and 2 is too siginificant.
The option 3 appears to be the only realistic solution to me.

It appears to me that some major surgery is needed and that some
decisions in the BRM have to be reverted on the basis of new findings 
such as misinterpretation of 8601 dates by Ecma-376 implementations.
I think that we have to prepare an executive summary, which sketches 
required changes and new findings.
