That actually sounds like a useful and natural unit to use, and certainly easier for programmers to remember. It would allow the upper 32 bits to be equal to the Unix clock and allow conversion to a floating-point number of seconds without rounding errors.
Is there some good reason why a power of ten should be used? Is it because of rounding errors from times specified in decimal numbers of seconds?
