The WGs decided on 9/27 to fix this bug by adopting Don Chamberlin's
recommendation: "...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")?"
