Actually, this is an ambiguous situation. As a convenient feature,
`org-open-link' is sloppy and can follow links and timestamps in
comments and properties drawers.

However, syntax doesn't allow timestamps in properties drawers, so
behaviour is undefined if you expect to use it for anything else (e.g.,
adding the entry in the agenda).
