edit_timestamp two button confusion

Clicking wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=...#edit_timestamp will
end one up with two buttons, 1)OK, and 2)Update Post. This is a usability
disaster, with differing results between them too. And indeed there
are also two functionalities: A)Correcting a past date, and
B)Scheduling a future date... all overloaded into the gamble.

I'm saying offering the user two confirmation buttons is bad.

Also overloading the two jobs A and B, confuses the user.

I'm not too sure how much of a useability issue it is, The OK and Cancel links are in a separate section to the Update Post button, If you've just clicked on change time, Its obvious that the buttons refer to it.

The same happens for the Status and Visibility options.

"OK" Conveys that you've set the values to what you want, "Update x" conveys you want to update the page (To me at least).

Note: Using the Update page button instead of OK will save the settings instantly regardless.
