Yes, but not in the context of the original question.  Since copyright
now inheres from the work's creation, not first publication, and the
question was "should I list the creation date or the most recent
edit", there is no harm in listing the creation date.

But the real point I was trying to make is that listing extra
*intermediate* days is harmless.
