The time channel can be specified as either a regular or intermittent
channel. When specified as a regular channel, the single quote prefix
can be used to record incremental time between successive points.
Otherwise, the value of the time channel for a given sample point is
defined to be the timestamp of that point in the units and frame of
reference specified by its corresponding <inkSource> description
(more precisely, by the <traceFormat> element for the channel).

As with the other predefined channels, the meaning of the integer or
decimal values recorded by the time channel in a given trace is
defined by the <inkSource> information associated with the trace's
traceFormat. In the case of the time channel, its <channel> element
contains both a units and respectTo attribute.

There is no provision through a sub-element or attribute to cite an
associated inkSource from the traceFormat element. These references
to "its corresponding <inkSource> description" or "the <inkSource>
information associated with the trace's traceFormat" appear to refer
to an association that the format fails to construct.

What gives?
