Thanks for the idea. This is my current workaround. However, it
happens in longer headings that I insert a time/datestamp at the end
without realizing that I'm working in a todo heading. This is an
issue for me because I do have to check every time I'm using
timestamps. It's rather obvious that I fail from time to time and I
lose the entry on my non-todo-agenda.
