Problem Description:
I am seeing an inconsistency between isDate() and isValid("date",).  Below is a link to a gist that describes the scenario.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Result:
isDate(0) is false,
isValid("date",0) is true

Expected Result:
Quoting the documentation from here:
"date or time: any date-time value, including dates or times; equivalent to the IsDate function."

I believe that it should state that it is equivalent to the isNumericDate() function.  Can someone confirm that it is using the isNumericDate() behind the scenes?

Hi Adobe, I've verified this is fixed. The IsValid() doc has been updated to clarify that IsValid("date",x) is the equivalent of IsNumericDate(x). Thanks!, -Aaron
