My only worry about time_point is then things like local_time or
multiprecision_time (no these don't currently exist in the library) would
probably need to be local_time_point and multiprecision_time_point. In the
context of other time types adding 'point' doesn't sound appealling.

Done. Once again the existing names will be deprecated.

Well I continue to actively improve the library based on user input and issues
that I am aware of.
