Isn't a valid day string just a normal date string?  The month string
is "month-year", after all, not just "month".

A year string by itself isn't useful in the current spec, as there's
nothing that would consume it.  <time> uses a date or datetime, and
the various inputs all use times, dates, weeks, or months.
