@alvestrand It sounds like you want a timestamp that's comparable to

performance.timing.navigationStart + performance.now()
Is that correct?

As @bzbarsky points out, [a bit of a footgun](https://jsfiddle.net/jib1/zqpo4kcq/), but an improvement over *getStats*'s timestamp today, and more backwards compatible than say, changing its (zero-)origin from 1970 to page load.

I like it, if we can move both *getStats* and *getContributingSources/getSynchronizationSources* to it.
