Some would feel they are 'busy'. I always put the timestamp at the
beginning of the heading, so there is a regular pattern (not much
different from the leading heading stars) and I've just got use to it,
so I don't really see it now.

For me, archiving is about data I'm unlikely to need again, but just in
case I do, it is in the archive. I rarely look at my archives. However,
when I do archive, I will usually archive into a 'year' file. So, to
find all the meetings held in 2015, I would open that archive file and
search for entries with the tag MEETING (I also have a tag for PHONE).
