As documented in 8.2.1 The date/time prompt section of Org manual:

       Not all dates can be represented in a given Emacs implementation.  By
    default Org mode forces dates into the compatibility range 1970–2037
    which works on all Emacs implementations.  If you want to use dates
    outside of this range, read the docstring of the variable

Emacs implementations that won't be able to handle out-of-range dates
are 32-bit Emacs versions. See

If we can assume that most of Emacs versions are 32-bit, we can flip the
default value of `org-read-date-force-compatible-dates' to nil.
The default `t' value has been set 12 years ago, when 32-bit systems
were much more common.
