I guess it is possible to split the change of the datetime format over two 
different proposals. But I am not sure what is gained by that - after all, both 
change the way datetime is handled, and will require clients to reevaluate 
their approach.

So if they need to touch the code, I'd prefer to do it once, not twice.

That's why I would argue it should remain in one KEP.
