Querying modification date without using dataview

Use case or problem

I would love to have a way to query the modified date of a file in the global search and graph filter with a simple syntax.
For example I imagine being able to show on the graph all the files modified since yesterday.

Proposed solution

file.mtime is queriable in Dataview. Why not as a poperty?

→ [file.mtime:<date(yesterday)]
