| Importance: High
| All dates are *ISO (program and database); *USA is for show only.
|  I assumed
| the WS controller or some piece of under-the-covers code (external to the
| application) handled date conversion.  Examples: the timestamp data type
| actually only takes 10 bytes but always shows 26 characters; a
| variable-length field always shows its full length even if it's empty.
| If changing the date data type format is cosmetic, then changing the DSPF
| only should have sufficient (but it wasn't).
| If changing the date data type format is > cosmetic, it should
| have signaled
| CPF4131 (but it didn't).
