They are meant to be valid at any time and any given context. But nothing prevents users of my system to create or modify the files dependently on date.

No, not related to change of things and moreover not related to temporal changes.

With those and those parameters and in those and those situations (such as if the source namespace happen to be the same as the value of :source-namespace predicates).
