Full disclosure: i've been involved in designing the first one and
developed the second one top to bottom (except for the web UI

The notation could have some (close to negligible) use in those cases,
however i as well as Werner don't see much practical sense in
timestamp-only sig type discussed in another subthread as all
timestamping operations are performed with a dedicated key anyway.
