Temporal precision is not respected on DateDt elements #101

For example, if you use the following call on a Patient element:

patient.setBirthDate(Calendar.getInstance().getTime(), TemporalPrecisionEnum.DAY);

The resultant XML appears as follow:

<birthDate value="2015-02-04T21:14:06"/>

This works for resources that contain DateTimeDt elements, but not DateDt elements.

There appears to be a workaround to this issue which is to construct the DateDt and then switch off zulu time as follows:

DateDt date = new DateDt(Calendar.getInstance().getTime());

However, this still seems like a bug to me. Even if zulu time is specified, the precision should still be respected.
