I think commented repeaters add unnecessary overhead to the already
loaded timestamp syntax. This is, IMO, not a common enough need to
warrant even a minor syntax change.

However, we still need to move forward. So, I suggest to revert the
change about inactive timestamps. Inactive timestamps cannot be
repeated. This is less disruptive than the current situation. 

However, I also suggest to add a new hook, run after repeating
timestamps. With this hook, and a proper, user-specific, markup, it
should be possible to pick inactive timestamps in the section and
"repeat" them manually, i.e., on a case-by-case basis.
