    why not?

    The time representation used by Ice is in microseconds from epoch (1/1/1970) with 64 bit integers which allows to represent the time until (more or less) year 294240. This assuming signed integers and forgetting the gregorian correction to calendar and the slow down of earth orbit of about 1 second per century ;)
