It's these multitude of timestamp locations which makes changing the
timestamp of an existing entry through Elisp so tedious (I had to deal
with that in org-caldav), so using a property for it seemed like a good
idea. Anyway, I understand your reasoning, and I guess we should change
how gnus-icalendar generates its Org entries.
