Well, you have a point.

However having seconds measurement in a language that puts milliseconds as first class citizens would incur the cost of context switching.

Thanks for the info

The context switching is precisely why I want this. If you're dealing with seconds in the backend but have to constantly switch to thinking in milliseconds for the frontend code, that's mental work I could spend thinking about the actual code.
