everybody the right interpretation of this dates?
I doubt that all users of IMSLP understand what fl. means. Even I didn't know about it until the recent thread here in the forums. So, many users will probably understand it as birth and death years, implicating that he died with age 16...
So, yes, I totally agree that replacing the birth/death years with the active work span is definitely confusing to lots of users!
