This would work exactly as advertised. When the message enters the mailbox
on the receiving nodes end. You cannot in any way build a safe time
construct over multiple nodes, so you opt for the next best case: a lower
bound on the sojourn. This means that a message has spent at least XXms in
queues inside the system. But it could have spent more time than that.

I don't think you can do better than this in a distributed network, but of
course this requires a proof.
