Sounds awesome.

Count me in as another major user of inactive timestamps. I use active 
timestamps only for appointments, and when I'm
working on a task I constantly add inactive timestamps via single keypress 
macro. When I review what has happened in the
agenda, I only toggle on the inactives when I need to see them.

Professionally they have been lifesavers. When did I execute that command on 
that host? When did the user call? What
hours do I need to bill? Etc.

Please consider preserving the existing inactive timestamps functionality.
