null is returned by SyndEntry.getPublishedDate() in case of wrong time format from RSS supplier

Description

I'm using ROME 1.0, Manifest.mf says: Build-Jdk: 1.6.0_10.
The problem is that RSS provider supplies PublishedDate in wrong format (timezone is missing) and ROME returns null on SyndEntry.getPublishedDate();
Maybe it is possible to refine parsing procedure somehow. In worst case scenario maybe return as PublishedDate value from LastBuildDate or else, but not null.
Here is the link with wrong date format:
http://dir.yahoo.com/rss/dir/getrss.php?reg_us

It returns (well, at least, how it looks like in Chrome, and IE8):
<pubDate>WED,23 MAY 2012 02:23:01</pubDate> // no space after week day, time zone is missing
but has to be like:
<pubDate>WED, 23 MAY 2012 02:23:01 GMT</pubDate>

Any comments, ideas?
