I hope this gets to the mailing list. I'm not sure how the mailing list works.

As for the below,
1) I've just spent a lot of time trying various searches at the emacs-orgmode Archives, and reading through many pages of results, but I can't find the mailing list discussion mentioned below by Nicolas. Can anyone help? Until I read that, I won't comment further on whether it was a good idea to insist that PROPERTIES and dates immediatly follow the headline.

2) If there is good code for fixing the properties drawers, why isn't it in the org-agenda-set-property function? The code there now just creates new PROPERTIES drawers, ignoring existing ones.

There are many, many drawers, and the fix is long and tedious:
It isn't. ORG-NEWS file provide a function to do the fixing for you.

I think that you should possible go back to the way it was before the
"fix the properties" patch. If it is terribly important to fix the
drawers, create a new function that fixes them as intelligently as
possible (copying existing drawers into the correct place).
See above.

But the better idea is to forget "fixing" these drawers. Is it truly
that important to have the SCHEDULED and DEADLINE in the line below
the heading, and the PROPERTIES drawer directly beneath?
Yes, it is. This subject was discussed on the ML already. Once fixed, it
is not much of an annoyance however.
