No, I don't have to, thanks to such tags as check_date. But then again,
check_date, survey:date etc. only came to be invented because API
support was missing. It would be better to have somthing like that in
the API itself. I would welcome it.

Interesting approach, but what tag do you use for that? It sounds like
you use check_date for that, but check_date is documented as "The tag is
intended to document the last date, when an object as a whole or
specific tags of the object were checked and verified".
