Perhaps I simply don't understand, but I fail to see the need for adding
such functionality. Org files are plain text and you can just use the
build-in or any of the add-on search tools to search for anything,
including timestamps or things which may look like timestamps.

The only time org needs to provide search functionality is when that
search does need to be done within the context of a date/time object.
