He didn't talk about using this for timekeeping stuff in FreeBSD. He  
used this an an example what could be done for RAID.

As you didn't asked for a specific action regarding this I try to do  
it. Please correct me if I don't get it right:

Constantine, we have a standards compliant API for timekeeping events.  
Any time related stuff should use this API. Please add a text and a  
pointer, e.g., in the man-page and/or any other sensible place, which  
tells that our RFC 2783 compliant API shall be used.
