Plugin for custom datatypes

Is it possible to write a plugin for custom datatypes in MySQL? I ask because I have a date format (HL7) that uses a precision variable (i.e. it could be year-only, or year-month, or all the way to second) and I'd like to be able to use the BETWEEN condition on it when searching, rather than some complex substring comparison for all possible combinations.
