On the Unicode site, these "good reasons" are mainly absent. There's
nothing that marks this particular content as being ipso facto different
than any other content on the page.

The only few pages where the Unicode site is multilingual include the
"what is Unicode" translation pages. On those pages, one could make an
argument for setting keeping that date in English, because it's tightly
coupled in the design of the page to the copyright statement, which is
not translated.
