 We need to keep an eye on http://w3c-test.org/webperf/specs/ResourceTiming
 /#processing-model, which promises to provide both local and network
 timing information to JS.

 These timers do seem amenable to spoofing (and hopefully also JS hooking).
 I don't see a lot of breakage being due to them being wrong, and they are
 not event driven so we don't have to delay delivery. I'm guessing if these
 timers were wrong, at worst webapps would just make poor load balancing
 and latency reduction decisions (which I assume is their intended use?)
