My point is that if someone is updating firmware in a real-life setting, maybe they should give some more thought to the versioning scheme, rather than simply telling the device "load whatever was compiled later in time".

I'm not saying `APP_VER ?= $(shell date +%s)` is a bad idea - it is great for development. I wonder, though, wether it was smart to place a default in `riotboot.mk` rather than put it in the application's Makefile, and thus force the user to at least see what's going on.
