Yes, it is there for a reason but it isn't used by the scheduler
per se. It is used for the New Titles lists which helps the
user find new and different things that they might want to

No need. Every title's date gets updated each day that it
appears in the listings again. If the date hasn't been updated
in nearly a year it will be removed. This way it can keep lots
of the titles that might repeat after several months but all of
the one time events will eventually go away.
