OK, my build is customized anyway, so it's not a problem *for me*.

But, suppose I'm a user opening a ticket because the date is not working
anymore. Strange it's not happened already.

What would you say? "The date is not supported anymore and the space in
the title block is a decorative blank"?

I think that's an unreasonable feature loss. I agree that having the
date updated automatically can be a nuisance. What have you against
adding the date as an editable field for the title block?

I'd like to know what's your reasoning
