It is not possible anymore, since
12e73e58af9881faf5aba52db68798c16cff22c0 (Apr. 2010).

The commit message is

    Only record LAST_REPEAT if it makes sense.
    The definition of "makes sense is here:
    - either the user is logging repeats (org-log-repeat)
    - or the entry contains clock data, in which case the LAST_REPEAT is
      needed to display clocking time properly.
    Request by Dan Griswold, with some support from Bernt Hansen

As your message suggets, we might extend the "makes sense" definition.
Maybe Carsten (Cc'ed) has an opinion about this old change.
