I would (first) prefer the other way around:
I would like to see a facility (or even API feature) to avoid the need
to change an object for setting it as valid.
Something like: yes, this pub exists and the tags (or even better: the
marked tags) are valid up to $NOW
If changesets like the one you mentioned are for "refreshing" objects,
that would be a much better solution, I guess.
