Where does this :CREATED: property come from?  The only code I can find
is in contrib/lisp/org-expiry.el and since that isn't officially part of
org-mode yet I don't know if it makes sense to have code in the cloning
function to handle it.

Maybe (if there isn't already) the clone function could use some list of
properties for special handling (ie drop this property, don't shift the
date on that property, etc)

If it can be generically handled then whatever code you include that
adds functionality for the :CREATED: property can also update that list
so it is handled in a sensible way.
