This is probably a decision you'll have to decide on. You might want to use
the regular birth tag with an Old Style role sentence. This way you can easily
see on the Person View what was a Quaker event. It also might be advantagous
to set your default birth sentence as the Quaker one (I think you can do that
in v5, I'm using v4)

I just hate that. One of the reason's I really like TMG it doesn't take my
dates and convert them. I never used FTM but I did experiment with data entry
and as soon as I entered any date in the OS data range it would double date it!
