It's not overthinking, it's thinking differently.  One of the tenets of KMM is
to follow good accounting practice, including double entry bookkeeping.  Money
can't appear or disappear; it moves from one place to another.
What you are asking for is certainly possible, but I'm pretty sure the KMM
developers are not going to do it.  I don't know for sure, but I don't think
any of the other financial applications do it either.  
There are (almost) always differences between transaction and posting dates:
when you write a check vs. when the recipient credits the amount to your
account vs. when it clears your bank.  
It might be possible for KMM to add a second date to all splits, keeping a
single transaction date for the internal bookkeeping and allowing you to use
the other for sorting and display.  A whishlist for that could be reasonable,
and I think it is different from the float account requested by bug 135198. 
This might be done by KMM keeping not only the transaction date, which could
remain the same for all splits, but a separate clearing date for each split.
