Googling for it I can't seem to find a plausible explanation.  

There is lots of wrangling on Slashdot as to whether it has something

to do with 0x10 being 16 in binary and 10 in BCD. ges-Payment-Processing  

Could it be that someone is storing the year in 2 digits?  

You would think that lesson had been learned.
