The reasonning is that "load" is the load planned before starting the
work. Load_left is the estimated load left last time the ticket was

You can start something saying "it will take me 3 days", then work one
day and realize you were wrong and will need another 4 days.

The question is being asked so often, though, that I am wondering
whether we should keep that feature for own private trackers or not.

You can plan to deliver on october 1st and actually start late... even
after the date you had planned to deliver on.

    starting_date   = Date(description=_('estimated starting date'))
    prevision_date   = Date(description=_('estimated publication
    publication_date = Date(description=_('actual publication date'))

The way many issue trackers handle this is that each time you change
the value of an attribute, a comment is added. The list of all the
comments attached to a ticket then serves has an audit trail.

Do we have many people that think we should do it the way other
trackers do it ?
