FWIW, if we decide to keep it someone needs to find the courage to fix
the color issue.

Hm. yes, "slightly. I have seen quite a few time display units with
date display as well, though I assume most of them did not pop out a
calendar when touched, then again I could not say for sure as I did
not feel prompted to touch them. Calendars popping out of time
displays is a major affordance headache in general I think.
