I am not sure I understand this.

If all time is accounted for somewhere, either at the customer side or at
the IANA side, the described scenario could not happen. There should be no
time "between steps".

I can understand IANA not wishing to have total elapsed time in an SLE,
because that includes time spent at the customer side, outside IANA's
control. But since the initial and final timestamps would be available, it
should be easy to know what the total time was.
