Well, I have several counter points:

1) If it's not supported, it should throw an exception. At the moment it fails silently.
2) There's no reason to support a superset of ISO 8601
3) I'm using this because I'm implementing an iCalendar parser. The DURATION property type is based on ISO 8601:


In the wild I'm finding duration values with mixed weeks and days. Now I need to pre-parse this string, do weeks * 7, then regenerate the (almost identical) string before I can add it to the constructor.

I feel adding support for W and D at the same time does not pose additional confusion, and is a sensible feature.

ISO 8601 doesn't allow mixing weeks with anything else.

If you need both then just do the math: 7 * weeks + days

The DateInterval should support specifying weeks and days at the same time.

This is documented to not be supported, but this is imho silly and confusing.

Test script:

$di = new DateIterval('P1W1D');
echo $di->d;


Expected result:

Actual result:
