[Smwg] Time Code B

At today's CESG telecon, it was agreed that in fact the current CCSDS Time Code B definition does not require fractional seconds.  More directly, YYYY-DDDThh:mm:ss  is fine -- ss.s is not required.

I will ensure that the SOS book properly calls out YYYY-DDDThh:mm:ss format.  Can you please revise the "official" schema?  I believe this is, for now at least, in our common type definitions.

As an aside, 301x0b4 is due for 5 year refresh, and may, as a result, have some examples added to help clarify the situation.

Best regards,
