To me, that's the entire point. Agree with you 110%.

I don't insist on nanoseconds. I thought there was demand and since
the bits are cheap, why not futureproof? Since it seems I misread the
general consensus, let's standardize on nanoseconds and be done with
it. The point is a) let's have one clear way to do it and b) let's
take a decision so we can move on to other topics.
