Using nanoseconds for the unit seems like it might be slightly short-sighted. It's probably fine for now, but will it be too coarse twenty years from now? Wouldn't it be better to use picoseconds as the unit? That still allows for over four seconds to be represented in an unsigned 32-bit integer, or hundreds of years in a 64-bit integer.
