We should probably stick to using the timestamps provided by the 
platform (?)
not really sure about the use-cases, but may be actually useful for 
measuring how "stale" a particular data is (as was already mentioned 
by tobie@ I think)

Looks like on Android and Windows there are timestamps provided by the
 platform (although the exact semantics may be different). However I 
am curious as to what will happen if a platform is unable (or 
unwilling ;)) to provide timestamps.. or does this never happen?
