Order places bounds on observed events in a time sequence.  Log based
 ¹time' would have a different model of usage  and would validate the
order events rather than deliver a continuos clock time. For a broader
usage of time in the logs you have a good point about the Œtrust¹
particularly for time.  Different entries would have different qualities
of time accuracy and veracity that could be quantified.
