I think we should be able to use a similar logic to
`gnus-delay-article': it adds an X-Gnus-Delayed header with a timestamp
and seems to, as you proposed, periodically check for scheduled
messages. The header holds a timestamp for the prompted scheduled time
(which can be given in as an absolute date, or relative to the current
time) and we could add to that a `scheduled' tag or something along
those lines.
