invalid RSS feed, or not supported by rss toolkit?

I was trying to add this feed for testing purposes.

http://www.skatedaily.net/news/index.xml

It seems to bind fine, and I'm able to consume it, but the dates all come up to the date and time at that moment, and not the date that is listed in the xml. Now the times and dates render fine in IE7's rss reader, and it also comes up fine in my netvibes home page. So this leads me to believe that it may be a shortcoming in the RSS toolkit. If anyone could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.

after some research it appears that the toolkit doesn't transorm rss feeds that use the Dublin Core (from what I can tell) format. It seems that there are alot of feeds out there using dc:date instead of pubdate. The usefullness of the toolkit could be greatly increased if support for dublin core were added!
