To answer your question quickly:  These datings are accepted by virtually
no textual scholars outside of a very small handful; i.e. O'Callaghan,
Thiede and (maybe) a couple of others.

For an easily accessible discussion of why these datings are almost
certainly not correct, check out Graham Stanton's "Gospel Truth?".
