Frankly yes. A trakclist-less release would really be a pity.
I have never seen a tracklist-less release in the artists I edit, yet.
If I would see one, I would feel it really be a pity and probably complete it by all means.
I really prefer not, I would never trust a date like that.
If you really want people know a random date without adding the matching release, you can still write it down in the release group annotation.
I still prefer having an empty release, which is better foundation to discuss its existence with the editor who adds it.
