> Currently the record sequencer (delegator.getNextSeqId) is used to determine 
> the dimensionId for the DateDimension. This is unnecessary as the date (when 
> correctly formatted) can be used. 
> When formatted as 'yyyyMMdd' a dimensionId could be 20190423, which is a 
> correctly 'sequenced' primary key. 
> It also makes it easier to set the foreign-key in fact tables by generating 
> it based on the date, than by retrieving the dimensionId based on a retrieval 
> through the getDimensionIdFromNaturalKey service.
