I merely tried to illustrate we were not the first to consider using
Date for these things. At least on the non-TC39 side, Event.timeStamp
not being Date is seen as not that great. Now this point-of-view might
be horribly mistaken, but it exists. Should be easy to do the way
Brendan outlined for anything new though.

Also, I very much appreciate your feedback (and I'm not the boss), I
just don't always grasp it right away ;-) Give these miscommunications
some time, eventually this web platform thing will be better for it.
