How to extend time slice (?) of cost plans

We need a way to forecast our resource allocations and create/view cost plans out father than 3 years ahead. Currently there is an issue in doing so. To reproduce the problem for resource allocations:

1) Navigate to any project's Team --> Detail page
2) Go to a monthly allocation time period beyond May 2014 (note: at this point the user will get an alert on the top of the page that says "The time periods requested do not exist. Review the column's Time Scale settings."
3) Configure --> Edit Mode
4) Enter an allocation value for a time period beyond May 2014
5) Click save

Upon clicking save, the page will refresh but the allocations will not be saved.

Similarly, when viewing a cost plan:

1) Navigate to any project's Team --> Financial Plans --> Cost Plans page
2) Click on a cost plan (i.e. CP1)
3) Go to a cost time period beyond Jan 2014
4) Configure --> Edit Mode

Note: at this point the user is unable to edit cost beyond Jan 2014. This is because at this time users cannot set a cost plan end date beyond Jan 2014 when creating a new cost plan. For example:

1) Navigate to any project's Team --> Financial Plans --> Cost Plans page
2) Click the "New" button
3) Select the "Plan End Period" dropdown

It is also impossible a cost plan that extends beyond Jan 2014

What is the way to allow an extension of this? It may be related to time slice configurations.
