Watson,
In a world where everybody would only do what they qualified for and know
when to call for help I would agree with you but I think you underestimate
how many well meaning people would consider that sampling the system clock
is "unpredicatble enough".
Listing all the ways you could mess things up is obviously a lost cause but
naming a few bad ideas serves as a good cautionary tale IMO

Sincerely
