OutcomesTable with date values makes an error in freemarker

Description

When using OutcomesTable with some date values to validate, there's a problem with the freemarker plugin.
Freemarker seems to expect the .ftl file to include the date part to render, as specified in the exception.
AFAIK, i don't have any control under the ftl generation...
