I agree. Tracklogs without timestamps should be set to unix epoch, and
tracklogs with private timestamps should not be altered so that the
information can be misinterpreted. It should suffice to alter date and
hour to a consistent random value in the same year (to ensure that old
tracklogs can be identified), keeping minute and seconds intact (for later
analysis). If even minute and seconds are too sensitive (you were
speeding, I guess...), better set everything to unix epoch.
