What is the right DCC database expiration?

Just a random though, but what about changing the time stamp from the
time the record was created to the time last it was updated?  Checksums
of messages that are still going around would stay and ones that had
stopped circulating could be expired on a shortened time frame.

A potential downside I can think of would be an expansion of the test
message problem.  Perhaps a common enough non-bulk message could linger
long enough in the database to cross the bulk threshold?
