The customer's name will be filled in if this field is left blank. 

See the check subroutine in FS::cust_main or just look at your database.

Perhaps the "requried" marking on the customer edit screen should be
removed.  Patch appriciated.

For credit cards, I think it should actually default blank and force you
to pick something.

For Billing, 2037 is appropriate, being as Freeside probably suffers from
the y2037 problem.  :) 

For complimentary, one year from the current month is appropriate.
