@emmanuelsearch You've got it! This has caused no end of confusion. We (Milosch and I) originally recommended using UTC timestamps as monotonic sequence numbers because they guarantee world-wide monotonic increase of sequence numbers. This seemed useful in coordinating disparate development teams. However, the use of timestamps in any way causes so much confusion on embedded systems. This eventually meant that we had to reword things significantly, calling it a sequence number and suggesting that a good source of monotonic sequence numbers is UTC time.
