I do not think so. Especially within Hyper-G a link can be created at any
time without changing the document itself (think of links within sounds or
movies) and therfore we added an author and creation date attribute.

Consider the case that you are searching for all changes on a server in the
last day (search for -1d on a Hyper-G server).
