[CF-metadata] Representing Matlab time in a CF-Metadata compliant file

I'd like to convert some files from Matlab to NetCDF formats with as little modification of the data as possible.
I am running into some ambiguity with dates formatted according to the Matlab convention where 1.0 == Jan 1, 0000. Since Matlab assumes a year "0", and UDUnits does not, should the time units for Matlab dates be "days since -0002-12-31"? While it seems correct, I haven't seen anyone else use such units.
