We've talked in the past about adding hooks for extra pre-1970 data, 
presumably mainly for astrological applications.  As long as they don't 
significantly get in the way of the main database (whose scope is areas 
that have agreed since 1970), I don't think people would have a problem 
with that.  It would be a nontrivial task, though.
