First thought: I agree. 

Second thought: what about the date of an alarm? Third thought: we have the
(small) alarm icon. I remain undecided on this…

-1 to sinking without a clean up. 

Whilst it's logical for bubbles (typically blue dots) to float items
upwards, I don't like the idea of sinkage. 

Wherever possible, avoid making things more complicated than simple triage +
clean up.

If a thing lacks something (e.g. a schedule), better to simply leave it
visibly lacking.

I'd prefer white space to Unscheduled.

Agreed; triage should be kept uncomplicated.

Agreed … and I'll consider the other messages in this topic ASAP. Time to
head to work now. 

This discussion is very interesting to me. When I first edited
<http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/DashboardIcons>, for Chandler 1.0.2,
the Summary table: date aspect was the one aspect that really bothered me. I
too often find myself choosing to ignore that column.
