It would expand to the current year (4 digit), would be useful for dynamic copyright strings such as:
VIAddVersionKey /LANG=${LANG_ENGLISH} "LegalCopyright" "${U+00A9}${__YEAR__}, My Company. All rights reserved."

!define /date __YEAR__ "%Y"

This is exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks!

If we added a date define in a fixed format you could get the year from that:
; ISO 8601 basic: !define /redef __UTCDATE__ 20140506 !define /redef __UTCTIME__ 240560 !define /math __UTCYEAR__ ${__UTCDATE__} / 10000 !define /math __UTCMONTH__ ${__UTCDATE__} / 100 !define /math __UTCDAY__ ${__UTCDATE__} - ${__UTCMONTH__}00 !define /redef /math __UTCMONTH__ ${__UTCMONTH__} - ${__UTCYEAR__}00 !define /math __UTCTIMEH__ ${__UTCTIME__} / 10000 !define /math __UTCTIMEM__ ${__UTCTIME__} / 100 !define /math __UTCTIMES__ ${__UTCTIME__} - ${__UTCTIMEM__}00 !define /redef /math __UTCTIMEM__ ${__UTCTIMEM__} - ${__UTCTIMEH__}00 !echo 'Y=${__UTCYEAR__} M=${__UTCMONTH__} D=${__UTCDAY__} H=${__UTCTIMEH__} M=${__UTCTIMEM__} S=${__UTCTIMES__} (No leading zeros)' ; ISO 8601 extended: !define /redef __UTCDATE__ 2014-05-06 !define /redef __UTCTIME__ 24:05:60 !searchparse "!${__UTCDATE__}" "!" __UTCYEAR__ "-" __UTCMONTH__ "-" __UTCDAY__ !searchparse "!${__UTCTIME__}" "!" __UTCTIMEH__ ":" __UTCTIMEM__ ":" __UTCTIMES__ !echo 'Y=${__UTCYEAR__} M=${__UTCMONTH__} D=${__UTCDAY__} H=${__UTCTIMEH__} M=${__UTCTIMEM__} S=${__UTCTIMES__} (Leading zeros)'
...the year is easy to extract in both formats, the rest is a bit of work in the basic format unless we add a /substr mode to !define.
