I agree with this and it's been discussed before. Note I haven't looked
at the new proposals, and can't till later, but I would like everyone
interested in this topic to please look at:

This is a proposal for the current timer to be replaced with a core
template that can use date_time types (including the microsecond clock
type) and time durations. Please edit and update this page with
additional thoughts.
