Indeed. For example, my wife started her current job on a Feb 29th. There
are significant financial events that happen on various anniversaries of
her employment (vesting of stock and retirement benefits). It really is
important that everybody know exactly what is meant by "10 years from Feb
29th, on a given year", and what it means in one context may not mean what
it means in another.
