Hello Steve, (and all)

At one point, osm-editor *wrote out* Unix timestamps - however I fixed that 
some months ago. The current version both reads and writes ISO dates.

However, if you add NEW track points with osm-editor, they will (quite 
sensibly...) have no time information associated with them, so no time tag. 
But I don't think the time tag is required by the GPX specification
