Well, at least the reason mentioned in the gmane citation about knowing if it was 2 am for them, is strange. Did anyone ever check this timestamp to see if a patch was made at an unusal hour? What does it tell you? Some people sleep from 4am to 11am and do their best work at 2am. Only if you know someone you could infer he made a patch at an unusual time, but then you probably also know where he lives and have this information anyway.
Your best and only indication of a sub-par patch is the patch itself.

The only reason I can see is as a warning signal or indication that a patch wasn't sent by the person whos name is on the cover.
