Please don't.  These strings are for human consumption.
"2014-01-31T21:44:11" is easily parsed by humans, while "1391204651"
needs some program to convert it to human-readable time stamp.  If you
look at this text outside of Emacs, the conversion is not easy, and
even inside Emacs it needs to type a command, which is a nuisance.

It's a magic cookie which is easily interpreted by simply reading it.
