What about those _on_ the headline?

Not at all. There are other ways to trigger a headline export (a TODO
tag, another timestamp in the section, SCHEDULED information...).
`org-icalendar-exclude-tags' is much stronger, since it will ignore
headline unconditionally.

I'd rather use something like:

  t   generate an event for every timestamp type in the headline

and so forth.
