If it where for me I would opt for just half-open intervals. The only
problem I've ever had with them is when working with FINITE ranges,
i.e., there is no way of expresing the range of 8 bits integer with
half open intervals of 8 bit integers, but I would happily pay that
cost for the benefits of not having people unintentionally make
non-contiguous date/timestamp intervals, which I periodically suffer.
