for many tasks that are time/date based it would be really useful to be able to recognize common terms that represent actual time/dates and be able to get the specific date/time referenced (including relative date/time). For example:
"Let's meet tomorrow at noon for a couple of hours" would generate a date/time range between noon and 2pm the next day
