Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 A few ideas here:

 * Is there an existing date-picker JavaScript library we can lean on?
 * Is there an existing PHP library that would map date & time formats to
 fields with appropriate boundaries?
 * Date & time fields could have many different usages and permutations of
 combinations. Are there any event calendar plugins that are doing this
 really well we can learn from or partner up with?
 * I think I would ultimately like to see our "Date" field replaced by a
 more robust "Date/Time" field. One with a few popular options to choose
 from (date only -- all day, date & time, date range, date & time range,
 * Make it so fields are mapped to WordPress's format, and not hard coded
 to Day/Month/Year order

 In general, I think there is good discussion happening here. Our current
 Date field is not ideal, but exactly what is ideal likely needs to
 influenced by other successful projects that use dates & times.
