Ok, now I've got it.
Sorry to have bothered you and thanks for answering.
I misinterpreted/overinterpreted that matter, because I found it somehow
essential, that people deliver the timestamp of their visit.

GPS-tracks usually have a timestamp. So, I thought, when importing data,
this timestamp is preserved. Every Editor should preserve it and not
touch it (unless $user chooses to tamper with it).
