I don't quite understand this, are you saying when I yank text into an
org buffer it converts any random time stamp like information into
proper org format timestamps? So if I were to kill the following text
from some buffer,

some random time stamp 2011/10/07

and yank it into an org buffer, it will be converted to

some random time stamp <2011-10-07>

I have been using org for quite sometime, but I don't think there is
any such feature. And if there was, I would say that's too intrusive
to assume I want every time information to be stored as timestamps. Or
on the other hand, do you mean that the text doesn't change but the
text face does? I would think that is a fontlocking issue.

If I am misunderstanding, could you please illustrate with a small example?
