Ok, I'll open the can of worms...

- Should replication be changed to obey --disable-integer-datetimes?
- Should we consider formally deprecating FP timestamps, starting with no longer supporting SR?

While #2 may sound rather severe, I'm wondering if a different datatype for timestamps stored as floats would ease that pain.
