On the contrary, "structs should be designed to consider the default 
initialization a valid state." In particular, the default initialization sets 
"all value type fields to their default value and all reference type fields 
to null."

In the particular case of System.DateTime, a default-initialized instance 
corresponds to 1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM.
