Do you actually need 64 bits for the times?

That's the big cost. And it seems ridiculous, if you actually care about size.

You already have a 64-bit start time. Everything else is some
cumulative relative time. Do those really need 64-bit and nanosecond
resolution?

Maybe a 32-bit microsecond would be ok - would you ever account more
than 35 minutes of anything without starting anew?
