Comment (by boonebgorges):

 I'm coming around to the idea of including these features, but I think the
 suggested UI needs some refinement. Some thoughts/ideas, for discussion:

 * Let's break out the options into a separate metabox - "Field Options" or
 something like that. Or maybe even two separate metaboxes: "Range" and
 * The year/no-year checkbox is kinda arcane. If we're going to support
 this, let's make a more general set of formats, so that admins can decide
 in a more fine-grained way how they want dates to be formatted. The
 easiest way to do this would be to provide a set of hardcoded formats:
 "February 25, 2015", "February 25", "2015-02-25", etc. More complex would
 be a free-form field with swappable placeholders, akin to PHP's `date()`
 (but more user-friendly). Defaults should be sensitive to localized date
 values/WP settings.
 * We could use better labels for the two radio buttons related to Range. I
 suggest something like "Fixed" and "Dynamic".
 * If we're going to make these improvements, we can remove the 1902-2037
 restriction, which I'm sure was implemented to avoid problems with
 freeform data entry.

 Thanks for your work on this so far!
