I would actually suggest that it would be better to put in some form of
NOTBEFORE (better name anyone?) that would do the hiding, instead of
(mis) using SCHEDULED for this purpose.  I looked into the org-mode code
and it's very nicely structured so that it should not be hard to add
this.  I have been meaning to get around to it myself, but haven't been
able to take time away from what I'm paid to do for this "recreational
programming" yet....
