If you are prompted for the date, you can give a point ('.') and 
the current date is shown.
I think this is "short enough".

Indeed, short enough.  Thank you.

I guess I should have found it by myself, but skim reading through
8.2.1 gave me the feeling that it was only devoted to specific
formats.

Also, when searching through the manual for time-stamp, I was a victim
of the time-stamp/timestamp curse :-)

Manual overwhelmingly uses timestamp, except several "time-spamped",
which appear to be just right.

Not so much for function and variable names. Some (few) use time-stamp
with dash.

Would you be interested to create a patch?
We can simply provide "timestamp" aliases to "time-stamp" functions and
variables and then mention the aliases in the manual.

I wish I could, but it is beyond my ability: I am not an (e)lisp
programmer.

It is not too hard. Just a question of sprinkling defalias and
defvaralias near the functions with "time-stamp" in name.
lisp/org.el has plenty of examples.

Then, doc/org-manual.org is just an Org file where you can add extra
#+findex: entries with "timestamp" function name references.

We have the details about creating patches in
https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html#first-patch

Hello.

The manual says that 

"When point is at an existing timestamp in the buffer, ['C-c .'
(‘org-time-stamp’)] is used to modify this timestamp instead of
inserting a new one."

but the default value is the existing date, not the current one so it
is not convenient at all for me.

In fact, I am looking for the equivalents of 'C-u C-u C-c .' and 'C-u
C-u C-c !' but without the time -- just the date.

I couldn't find it in the manual nor after searching the Internet.
If this does not exist, I am making it a feature request.

Thanks in advance.
