That is one possible approach, but it's one that makes duration
calculations much more complex. In this approach the duration data type
becomes polymorphic; it can be *either* days *or* seconds, and you need
drastically different code to deal with the two cases. Add in durations
that are *both* (e.g., P1DT5H), and you're in deep pain.
Calendar calculations are hard, and you can not ignore real life.
