I wonder what is the best way to work with fixed dates in org.
I do not want to them entered as "SCHEDULED".

Say I have a meeting on a certain date.
I do not want to enter it as a todo, as for me it is not really a todo but a simple meeting which is done when it is over. If I enter it as a simple headline (todo or no todo) and schedule it it will show up after the meeting as due until I mark it as "DONE" or delete the schedule.

Now I could use the diary. Agenda view will show the event and complain no more after it is past. Disadvantage: I cannot org-tag the diary entry. As I do not use the diary and diary functions are included in org I can use something like:

   * Fixed date event                                  :@LOCATION:
     <%%(diary-date 29 08 2007)>

which is ugly and cannot be entered with the help of the calendar (as by "C-c C-s"

What do you think? Would it be a good idea to at least support the entering of a "diary-date" by a org function directly with the help of the calendar? Maybe create a third type of schedule type: "FIXED" besides of "SCHEDULED" and "DEADLINE"?

How do you manage fixed events?
