If you create a commit object that violatse it and have 47 million
existing users pull such a history, they not be able to use such a
history with the version of Git they have.  Don't go there.

As somebody else mentioned, in distributed environment millisecond
timestamps won't have much meaning, so it looks like a very low
priority to me from Git's perspective.
