I would be cautious choosing a year to do this but pick a period a little longer.

In the UK we have a number of series which run once a year but can be delayed e.g. when 
rugby/football/cricket/tiddlywinks world cups occur, olympics, etc. Sometimes I am surprised when a 
new program pops up from an old rule I had totally forgotten about.

So, I like the idea, there is definitely cruft in my rules table which has to be cleaned every so 
often but an extra slice of caution will help.
