Spell-checkers tend to be pedantic, "1901"/"1996" could be
used to trigger the right of two pedants.  Not completely
pointless if used that way, and if some software supports
this distinction.

Agree with anything else you said, although migrating
a successful x-whatever experiment later is difficult.
