There are now three ways to do time:
  1) Timestamps
  2) Nonce-based
  3) Handle-based

There are two reference flows: Passport and Background check.
We have included only five examples:

     16.1.  Example 1: Timestamp-based Passport Model Example
     16.2.  Example 2: Nonce-based Passport Model Example
     16.3.  Example 3: Handle-based Passport Model Example
     16.4.  Example 4: Timestamp-based Background-Check Model Example
     16.5.  Example 5: Nonce-based Background-Check Model Example

Leaving the reader to ponder the sixth version.
Are we too cruel?   please comment.

There are now three pull requests that remain:

which have mostly been discussed before.
It would be nice to get wider review/comment on them so that the design team
can bring the draft to a close.
