Since it is easier to widen the domain of acceptable arguments than to narrow it in the future, I would say let's start by accepting str(x) only where x is date, time, timezone or datetime. I would leave out timedelta for now because it's str(x) does not resemble ISO at all. 

Either that or full ISO 8601. Anything in between is just too hard to explain.
