Forcing the IKBD to the current date is unfortunately also not a real
option: There are some old games that do not work anymore if the
IKBD clock does not behave like the one of a real non-RTC ST. IIRC, the
game "Zombi" does not work right in that case, for example.

So the answer is simple: Keep everything as it currently is. If you want
to run with the current real date, then use a machine with an RTC chip
(i.e. everything but a plain ST or STE).
