Good work! Your list is a good start of data I was going to add to Magic Card Sets (and have added to some degree already). Yet the matter seems to be more complicated, as quite a few of our date differ.
 
I suggest it would make sense to validate our sources and compare all the data in hope to filter out incorrect dates. My sources so far have been:  
 
- the printed dates on the prerelease cards
- archived articles of magicthegathering.com
- dates from the Prize Tracking Project which have been provided by motorcitymagic and origin from old internal judge newsgroup reports, if I recall correctly
 
Sources I have in mind to check, but have not checked are:
 
- Magic Encyclopedia books
- trading card magazines (I have almost all issues of The Duelist, TopDeck, InQuest, Scrye, and Cryptych at my disposal)
- Magic-related websites with an extensive archive
 
Note: It is important do differentiate between the date of the first prerelease and the official mass market release date which is usually two weeks later. Unfortunately, the latter date is poorly kept track of by WotC even for newer sets.
 
As usual, other members are welcome to contribute. Especially dates of releases for other languages will be very valuable to get.
