Well it depends. Ruslan has kindly explained this in better
words, so I'm copying him here:

% This is correct in case of MFC -- if you're making a RELENG_X
% specific change then the date should be update to the date of
% change in RELENG_X. Well, a common sense actually applies. ;)
It makes sense, now that I've thought a bit about it.
If you are 'pulling changes over' from another branch, you are
definitely modifying the file, but these changes were 'conceived'
at the date they were made in the original branch. Or something
like that, anyway :)
I don't think we have to go through each one of our MFC commits
and retrospectively 'fix' that, because this will generate a huge
number of commits!
