It's interesting to note that these two tense usages occur in English as well, e.g.
-- Oh, Albert's not at home. -- No, he was playing in a rugby match today, didn't he tell you?
-- What was the name, sir?
-- What were you asking for this painting?
-- Where were you going tomorrow?
Thank you for posting that on English usage. Exactly what I was thinking when I decided to explore the discussion.
I was trying to figure out how could imperfect be used in the future tense but the explanation by Alan was very helpful and accurate.Thank you
