XMPP did not exist before 1999, so I don't think that the "CCYY"
construction in XEP-0082 needs to support prefixing with a minus sign
for time prior to the year 1 BCE.
As to years with more than 4 digits, those would be needed starting in
the year 10000. Although I see no harm in mentioning the possibility of
that, I doubt that XMPP will still be in use 7985 years from now. ;-)
