Yes, I am indeed using this package. To be honest, I have forgotten
that it is org-expiry.el which generates those :CREATED: properties.
But I do find it important to know, *when* an item was created.
Independently from any expiry functionality.

This is not only because I am doing
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifelogging with
https://github.com/novoid/Memacs by the way.

Oh, I thought «contrib» is also «part of Org-mode» since it is in
the very same git repository. Thanks for clarification.

I can think of different situations where such a mechanism would be
handy, yes. Is Bastien Guerry (creator of org-expiry.el) reading

So for now I am afraid I have to either deactivate org-expiry.el or
remove any :CREATED: property before applying cloning.
