If this is done:

For a discussion of making syntax simple, extensible, robust,
quotable, nestable, pretty-printable, etc., see my posts on extensible
syntax.  Other keywords include "parsing risk" and "ID markers".  ID
markers use extensible syntax and thus provide examples.

IMO: I am not convinced that timestamps should be resyntaxed unless
other syntax problems can be solved at the same time.  I already have
to look up whether deadline warning goes before repeat or the other
way around, and what the meanings of the different repeat types are,
so, for me, timestamps are already pretty complicated.
