A lower limit is really only necessary if you detect a "nesting"  
situation, where timers are being repeatedly fired from within  
callbacks.  There is no need for a lower limit for single shot  
callbacks for example.  About all I could see the spec saying is that  
timers should be throttled to avoid CPU hogging (perhaps suggesting  
the value of 10ms).
