Hi Samuel,

the date/time prompt is minibuffer input and should be fully editable.
I feel that I cannot deviate too much from what people expect
from a minibuffer.  I did consider using the arrow keys for
something else, but in the end decided against it.

Having said that, I can give you a hook to install any keys you like
in that prompt - - - - OK, `org-read-date-minibuffer-setup-hook'.
