Needless linking of dates

The current template links the access date. Given that the access date isn't really a significant event in history, I see no reason for all the links. Is anyone really going to follow them? I have made a new template at {{cite web2}} that does not link the date. I suggest, after testing, that we replace this template with the new one.

To compair the difference. Here's the current template:

And here's the suggested new template

Having all those dates linked always bothered me... Ok yeah, you can browse by day or by year, but that's the only use that I can see, or am I short sighted? I mean, I suppose each year could be a category with a brief overview of the world at large on it, but that would require a good deal of work. Or at least a very, very clever summarizing bot...
