I don't really know what Jim meant (his question isn't comprehensible 
English) but at a guess, if he was asking whether pressing Enter in a date 
field should cause submission, that is up to the UA, as is IMHO quite 
clearly stated in the spec:


The spec just makes sure to define the behaviour in the case where it does 
happen, without limiting the cases where it may happen.
