But AFAIK this is only a problem because the scheduled tasks show up in
the "all currently open items" section. If scheduled items would no
longer show up there then this problem would not exist, wouldn't it?

Couldn't this be done with the calendar integration of org? Ah, now that
I checked the documentation I see that I can only get dates
(anniversaries, etc) from calendar, but not TODO items. I guess a
mechanism for periodic TODO items would have to come from org-mode as
diary only knows about (periodic) events but has no concept of periodic
TODO items.
