I don't think that's as much of an issue since PmW stamps it automatically.

In the long run I can see, for example, an administrator wanting to 
correct the $LastModifiedDate if a minor edit change caused the page to 
be listed out of natural order in some context.

BTW this could be something to place at the *bottom* of your current 
priority list: allow prevention of minor edits from changing the 
LastModifiedDate, so that listings by date only involve substantial 
changes. Are changes currently listed by version or by date on 
action=diff? If the latter, suppressing the date stamp or changing the 
date could be a problem I suppose...
