This is my current workaround, yes.

But it's a bit annoying because usually I do not start with:

    * Event <2011-07-12 Tue +1w>" 

... but rather with something like:

    * Event <2011-06-21 Tue +1w>
    :CREATED: <2011-06-21 Tue 18:40>
    <empty line>

And then the whole properties-drawer followed by the empty line gets
cloned too which is not so easy to be modified by a simple rectangle
operation alone.  I'll have to look into Emacs keyboard macros
(since I did not use them for nearly a decade). 

But if this is something a lot of people are aiming to, it might be
a cool idea to provide a not-so-workaround solution :-)

If not, I'll go for a works-for-me solution.
