Lightroom date defaults force inaccurate data

I see there have been other complaints about date/time issues. I am also pretty shocked and disappointed that such a great program (Lightroom) is missing a very fundamental option- that of changing date/time information. In older versions, you can select "unknown" for the entire date, just the month, or just the year. I have photos dating back to the 1920s. Sometimes i know the year but not the date. Previous versions allowed me to save the date as "1987" or whatever. With lightroom, it forces you to default to "january 1st" of whatever year you put in. And if i don't know the date at all, i am also forced to put an inaccurate date in. Photos can be precious records and this program allows for no integrity of data. As the person who maintains this kind of history in my family, this is a huge setback rather than progress.
