I'm going to jump in a little late . . .If you don't designate what tax year your contribution is for, then it is considered to be made for the current tax year. I.e., if you make a contribution now and "meant" for it to be for tax year 1999 but failed to designate it, then your custodian will put it in as for tax year 2000 (since you didn't designate which tax year, it is considered to be made in the current tax year). It kinda pertain to tracking the Roth because if you don't verify with your custodian the contribution is for the correct year, the IRS will send you some nasty letter, usually too late for you to repair . . .
