Well, I'm not a elisp hacker but what comes into my mind is a custom
function that does:

for all headlines with a TODO keyword

* check if property "creation-time" exists

* add propertie creation time with current date & time if such an
  propertie does not exist

and then hook this function into before-save-hook.

So the question is (a) if there are functions to process all items,
check for existence of a property and create properties (I'm quite
certain there are) and (b) how to use them.
