I consider that this means from "some date in 1964" to "some date in 2008".
Likewise if an author's dates are *1964 †2008, I interpret that: "some
date in 1964" to "some date in 2008".

Yes, I think!

I do not think so. Would not we use "one of a set" as of #203?
Or is that (maybe) a question of "reliability"? In that case, I would
prefer to represent such semantics with something as what I described in
some improvement of it) which lies in phase two, but (I think) could be
moved to level 3.
