SQL Server 2005 Datetime data type

Does anyone know if SQL Server 2005 will support date values before
1/1/1753 in the datetime data type?

It will not.

Then again, in SQL 2005 you can implement your own types in the CLR
(C#, VB.Net and the like), and a date type that cares for dates according
to the Julian calendar would be simple to implement.
