Comment (by smerriman):

 This bug has been around for at least 4 years now. Is there any chance at
 least the fix for 'c' could be added to core? Wanting to output an ISO
 8601 date string for a post is very common (structured data, metadata,
 etc), and it's strange that in order to do so anywhere within WordPress,
 you need to use 'Y-m-d\TH:i:sP' instead of 'c' (and only after lots of
 debugging / searching, as the Wordpress documentation itself says to use
