Agreed. I think that's planned for a long time anyway.

There's an issue and PRs to fix some usage of the legacy API:
https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/pull/1100 (merged)

Because hwtimer uses 32 bit timestamps. As long as the underlying timer does
not run faster as 1MHz, that sounds like a valid assumption.
