      Description

      The current data model allows start and stop dates for orders to be null; however, this makes it difficult to determine active orders when performing retrospective queries. After some discussion within the 18-Oct-2007 Developers Conference Call, we decided that it would be preferable to make start_date required, forcing the application to determine a reasonable default date as orders are created/changed.

      With this change, the order.discontinued bit becomes unnecessary and it should be removed.

      (u) order.start_date becomes required
        (-) order.discontinued
