I sometimes like to compute with dates in tables.  As it now stands,
org inserts computed dates in tables as active timestamps.
This makes no sense to me since, if its in a table, one probably wants to
treat the date just as a piece of data, not something to show up
in the agenda.

For example:

| Name  | Now                    |
| Bill  | <2017-01-16 Mon 08:17> |
| Sally | <2017-01-16 Mon 08:17> |
| Eddy  | <2017-01-16 Mon 08:17> |
#+TBLFM: $2=now()

Now I have three items show up in the agenda.  Shouldn't these get
inserted as inactive timestamps?
