Years past 2000

In the lesson it says:

As for the years post 2000's,

There is only one way to read them, and that is as a full number:

But there are still many years to come after the year 2000 (infinitely many actually). 

So, how would you say 'the 10th of March 2155'? (my 200th birthday :)

"Le dix mars vingt et-un-cents cinquante cinq" or "Le dix mars deux mille deux cents cinquante cinq" (or neither)?

Ernst, the formal way currently is to say ‘deux mille cent cinquante-cinq’ for 2155 (deux mille deux cent cinquante-cinq will be 2255). 

Who knows what will be acceptable by then ?
