I do not think that would be a good idea.
It would be better if there was a little note in parenthesis that says updated at a certain point.
When someone edits a post I would like the publication date and time to be updated to the time of the edit. I know I can go into the "Settings" tab below the content entry area and manually change the publication time, but it would be quite nice if it happened automatically. Is there an easy way to achieve this?

Learn something new every day. I did not know that the other two dates existed, but that definitely makes more sense than what I thought they wanted.
I believe if you blank out the publish date it’ll get automatically set to the current time. That would probably be the easiest way to go about it, if that’s what you really want.Do note though that we have three different timestamps. I’m not sure what your use case is, but there is a published, updated, and modified timestamp for every post. It may work better for you if you simply used updated or modified, rather than published, so there’s no extra step required.
Yep. Updated is bumped any time it’s updated, I believe Modified is updated when the “minor edit” checkbox is not checked… Or vice versa. We really could not have picked more confusing, yet completely logical, names for those fields.
That is what I thought would happen as well, though I thought that Habari did not have RSS, only ATOM, though I think I did see an RSS plugin one time.
Not sure where the default is, but if you go into the settings while editing a post, you can uncheck it. The only thing I can say for sure though is that you would probably need to know PHP, because you would need to either manipulate the loop used for posts or make something in the sidebar.
+1 As even after a good pub meal and some beers this made sense.
Also, I recommend this explanation become a wiki page to explain how all that works, since we have this question come up surprisingly frequently.
