Simple: I was wrong :-)

I didn't think that the timestamps were publicly exposed in any way. 
Apparently they are, and now I've learned something. It doesn't really 
change my standpoint -- I'm not going to upload fewer GPX files now that 
I've learned this -- but it could matter to someone else, so thanks for 
clearing that up.
