I see (and sorry for the slow reply).  I've never used habits, but that
does sound good to avoid.  Would you mind 1) wrapping the change below
into a patch (see <https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html>) and 2)
providing a minimal example like the one in my last reply so that
reviewers have something to quickly test?

No Wayman, I see that you replied [1] that your patch at
<https://orgmode.org/list/87ft8gelpn.fsf@gmail.com/> would allow working
around this issue [2], but do you still think the change below is a good
idea?  Thanks.

  [1] Note that it's detached from this thread because the References
      and In-Reply-To headers weren't preserved.

  [2] Sorry that that patch hasn't gotten any attention yet.

I haven't applied this to check, but I suspect you'll need some amount
of guarding (e.g. with boundp) to silence the byte-compiler here.
