Could we add dates to the “Status” line in SE proposals?

I was searching for information to help me solve a problem and it led me to this proposal. I was sad to see its status was “Returned for Revision,” as I’d really love to have this support.

My first thought was, “How long has this been awaiting revision?” Digging through the revision history to find the change of status is tedious.

It’d be great if the Status line could include the date when it entered that status:

Status: Returned for Revision (2023-10-17)

Of course, this sort of begs for a proper evolution registry, something that understands the semantics of a proposal and can filter and search them (and automatically show status history, etc). But that's probably overkill.
