I kind'a like this idea. The page could still do this by calculating a
"client-time - server-time" difference when a page is first created,
and then put an adjusted time stamp in the beacon data.

However it seems easy enough to include an age in the beacon. And it
seems like a common enough feature that it's worth helping authors.
