Subject: table:null-year


I ran across table:null-year while making sure we have definitions for 
all the attributes, etc.

Don't know if it should be an issue but thought I should at least ask.

We say:

> The |table:null-year| attribute specifies the start year for year 
> values that contain only two digits. All two digit year values are 
> interpreted as a year that equals or follows the start year.
> The default value for this attribute is |1930|.
Well, I can remember when 1930 would be a very good default value. ;-)

Question, perhaps for ODF-Next, is that the default we want now?

I suppose it is a question of user expectation, noting that I have no 
idea what an "average" user would want.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
