Judging from the response to my rfc, I probably made
a mistake in posting it without considerable forethought.
At that point in time, I thought that it would be more
'informative' were we to include the different properties
to allow users to look up when the file/directory was
added (imported, committed, merged, etc). Given your
comment, I suppose the required work (as implied by the
  RFC) is probably far less effective/efficient in
dev time usage.

My bad. I had misunderstood his post.
