Yes, insofar as that one is well-defined.  Unfortunately, it's not terrible very well-defined itself.  See the pains that https://www.w3.org/TR/hr-time-2/#time-origin-timestamp goes through to define something similar for `performance.timeOrigin`; you need to do something like that if you want to define a monotonic thing which kinda (but not really, so you better not be comparing it to `Date.now()` even though it'll be really tempting!) quacks like wall-clock Unix time.
