 This is actually intentional. The date field isn't meant to be
 specifically for birthday dates; it can be used for anything. We do want
 to look at different types of profile fields in a future release, and as
 an example, a "birthday field" sounds reasonable.

 If anyone's interested in why the upper year limit is 2037, it's to do
 with the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem Year 2038
 problem] minus a little for safety in case someone performs date
 calculations which go into January 2038.
