Apparently, "Effective Date" is not going to work - it already appears
in the SW elsewhere. They also don't like "effective". I have been
advised: "I'm looking for a term that expresses a limit, brake,
governer, throttle concept"
I'm thinking of suggesting: Maximum Backdate (meaning the furthest back
the date can go for data to be accepted).
