Hmm, to follow up on what I'd been saying yesterday...

On Fri, Jan 31, I myself wrote:

 Now, dwelling further on the timestamp thing earlier today, it slowly
dawned on me:

 When you were saying "timestamp", which to me and probably many others,
implies "the time that this thing was created or modified", is it
at all possible that you actually meant an *expiry-date* for the block?

Because that seems entirely workable to me (well, unless you put up
the next version before the previous one expires and the newer version
expires later than the older one).
