In bug 1489, we decided that casting from a string to a numeric type is treated 
as an overflow/underflow (e.g., FOAR0002, "Numeric operation 
overflow/underflow") if the resulting value is too big/small. But in casting 
from a string to a date/time/duration it is also possible that the value is too 
big/small to represent. The current F&O spec treats this as FORG0001, "Invalid 
value for cast/constructor". For consistency, should we change the error code 
for this condition to FODT0001 ("Overflow in date/time arithmetic") or FODT0002 
("Overflow in duration arithmetic")?
