    Why is DateFormatter.parseDateString() protected?

      Does anyone know why DateFormatter.parseDateString() is protected? There's no easy way to parse a Date in a format other than UTC? Flex definitely needs improvement in the area of dealing with dates. The DateValidator doesn't even handle the time part of a date. There should be a UI component for prompting for time values as well. Furthermore, there should be a converter interface for doing conversions in binding.
