I didn't think of that problem because I put the question mark in the
sub-bullet annotation of the task.

TODO [d: 2013-08-14] Investigate procrastination of tasks
    * Is this a feature of zim which would be useful?
    * 2013-08-14 Short description of use case posted on mailing list

But you are right, it would be a non-intuitive behaviour of zim.

Workaround could be to use two or more spaces in front of a question mark
which is to be counted.
This questionmark should be made optional and disabled by default. Only if
you know how to use it, it should be used.
