As a geospatial engineer
I want to filter all date fields using UNIX timestamps like it is expected by the time instant and time extent parameters.
So that, I can easily query and filter the features using UNIX timestamps without validating any security issues related to SQL injection by using DATE and TIMESTAMP expressions.
Currently, we have to use the DATE and TIMESTAMP expressions. Please, show some love to the query capabilities of the REST API.

event_date=TIMESTAMP '2020-02-29 00:00:00' => Succeeded
event_date=1582934400 => Failed
