Setting Default Date ??

I am currently working on a feature class that is associated with 4 subtypes. The "date" field is required to maintain a default value of 1/1/9999. I assigned this default value for each one of the subtypes through the feature class properties dialogue box, yet when I export the XML workspace and then import it back into an empty GDB, the assigned default date value seems to disappear from the "date" field.

- Is this the correct procedure when setting a default date for data that has subtypes?

- Is there a different method that would enable the schema to retain the default value ?
