By using maximum/minimum dates to mean something like "not yet happened" or "not yet known", you are using magic numbers however you look at it - regardless of whether said magic number can be represented by a constant.

Either use a NULL or preferably normalise the database to the point where the appropriate date field either exists or it doesn't.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
