invented long before anyone thought about the need for drawers.
Drawers are an added feature that is not needed to be able to make
org-mode useful. I don't think there should be a requirement for having
a drawer when you mark a task done just to record the CLOSED date.
Having an option to enable this behaviour would be fine with me.
The idea of including timestamps in property drawers is a fairly recent
development in org-mode.
