> It would be more logical to have the date construction started be start_date, and the date construction completed be completed_date.  Having the completion date tagged as start_date doesn't make sense.


I disagree, because start_date is the beginning of the tagged feature,
this is IMHO not the date when someone first thought about it, or the
plan got approved or the construction started but it is the date when
the feature was actually there as it is now.
