I don't think that every type that supports equality comparison should support order comparison. I think that if there's no meaningful comparison (whether equality or order), an exception should be raised.

Are you saying the "if" statements will raise TypeError if start or end are dates? That would be a sad day for Python. Perhaps you're saying that there is a "meaningful comparison" between None and anything else, but please clarify if so.
