The /badges/{ids}/recipients API function returns an array of badges, which does not include an award timestamp (example).

Currently the only way to obtain timestamps that badges were awarded is to either query it in SEDE (the Badges table contains a Date column), which isn't up-to-date, or scrape /help/badges/{id}, which is inefficient and time-consuming due to throttling.

This is a request to add an optional award_date (for example) field to the badges API object, present when user is present. I believe it makes more sense to add it to badges rather than shallow_user, as shallow_user is used in other API results (which generally include relevant dates where applicable already).
