We want to wait with merge until we know how we will deploy it.

ManfredKarrer added some commits Apr 7, 2019

Remove DateTolerantPayload interface
The date check would not add real protection as the attacker could just
use a new date and we do not cross check the date with the tx date.
We could do that but it would add complexity and we have another
strategy which does not require that.
Add TODO for removing the date from BlindVotePayload at mainnet launch
We don't want to break consensus and persisted data at current
dao_regtest by removing the date now. It is not used anywhere so it is
irrelevant but would break things as the hash would be different and
persisted data would not be readable anymore. So we delay that change
to the mainnet launch.
Remove republishing of blind votes at vote reveal
As we do not accept blind votes from the network during hte vote reveal
phase the republishing does not make sense.
Check if not in voteReveal phase when receiving blindVotes
We do not accept blindVotePayloads when we are in the voteReveal phase
to protect against late publishing attacks.

This might be a better way than using the date, but I don't have a really good model in my head so I'm not saying this with conviction.
