[Ansteorra] Why aren't we doing this?

I remember once getting crap from someone for playing a pre-600 Germanic persona 
like I do now years ago.  That conversation also included a tirade about why 
allow non-Western personas like Japanese and such.  As I said it was at least a 
decade or so ago.

  I was told as a newcomer 600-1600 or essentially the rounded average of the 
dates of Anglo-Saxon Christianization missions (597 Kent; 601ish for 
Northumbrian and Edwin) to the end of Elizabeth I.  Delightfully Anglo-centric, 
which I have no issue with personally.

Which "original charter" are you talking about? The original Articles of 
Incorporation for the SCA (dated June 18, 1969) say "pre-17th century." 

I know there was a widespread *belief* in the early days that the SCA's time 
period extended to 1650 (which still wouldn't cover someone who wanted to play 
1651) but that was never in Corpora, the By-laws or the Articles of
