That's correct. We can still make that snippet work by moving things around:

   tp2 = (tp1 - C1::tp()) + C2::tp() // ok, duration + time_point

   tp2 = tp1.time_since_epoch() + C2::tp() // same thing

   C2::tp tp2{tp1.time_since_epoch()}; // assuming compatible durations

Which gives you a time point which is as far from the epoch of C2 as the
original time point was from C1. Which as far as I know, it's meaningless.
