Indeed, but the point is that Resource Timing doesn't say which of those 
three cases it's using.

Why?  The spec doesn't say this anywhere.  My point is that it needs to, 
if it means that.  Presumably in the processing model.

Further, I believe that using DOMHighResTimeStamp for a _duration_ value 
is very misleading.  We should define a DOMHighResTimeDuration type for
