Is there a resource which does scheduled thread actions? Like delete?

So we have advertisers who are allowed to have a thread in a forum, but when their advertising ends, their thread should be soft deleted.
This made me wonder whether it would be useful to schedule specific actions on threads.
This would be for selected usergroups via the usual permissions.
So you choose a thread, and then choose a particular date and time to
  • Delete/Undelete/Hard delete
  • Approve/Unapprove
  • Stick/Unstick
  • Lock/Unlock
  • Move to a specified forum
It's like a one time scheduled task.
With optional alert sent a specified number of days in advance to a particular recipient (defaults to the person setting the scheduled action), to let them know the scheduled action is going to happen.

Your thoughts on this?
