Either like this (which can be queried using TIMESTAMP_IA="<2011-12-19
Mon>" or using a property (START="<...>"):

* TODO Task
  :START: [2011-12-19 Mon]

I don't understand why it would show today. The date is in the future
(and it's not a deadline) and the timestamp is inactive. It should not
show up at all, unless the variable
org-agenda-include-inactive-timestamps is set.

I'm not sure how one can query for tasks that do not have a property. A
possible work-around would be querying for all tasks and then using a
skip function to discard those have a start date in the future.
