When I import holidays for Norway, I get it up till the end of 2011. Looking at the form design I suspect that IBM has just forgotten about this feature and new holidays aren't there.

It is not...
...reproducible here for me using an english Domino 9 server. The Holidays for Norway begins at 2007 and ends at 2017.

I tried two times

First time I got 13 holidays imported, second time - zero. No holidays in 2012 onwards.

Check the Domino Directory...
Check the Domino Directory (names.nsf) on a server.

When you import holidays into your personal address book, the Domino Directory defines what the holidays are and how many years they repeat for.
When you open the Directory in Notes, you can see the holidays under Configuration -> Miscellaneous -> Holidays.

In my company's Directory, most holidays have a start date in 2002, and repeat for 10 years, so the last year is 2011.

Things get more complicated when I look at the Domino Directory template (pubnames.ntf) on the server.
The template contains a bunch of conflicts. Every conflict has a start date in 2002, while the non-conflict documents start in 2007.

One of your Domino admins (or yourself if you have that access) might have to manually update the holiday documents in the Domino Directory with a new start year - or they could delete all the docs that start in 2002, then copy-and-paste the newer docs from the template into the Directory.

Sorry Scott, I am not sure what you mean.
