I'd be happy to provide some input of my own on the subject. If they're "just visual cues", then they're not very good ones. Why? Because all the decimal pointed data is just "noise". It imposes an additional cognitive burden when someone is glancing at the axes, and trying to get an overall feel for where events happen to be falling. If/when they want to know a specific time point (or interval), then the cursors come out, but the axial times stamps are only meant to provide "round number" time-stamps, and they do not.
In SgtCajun's example, we're looking at a time-line with 50, 100, 150, 200 usec markers. Only not so much, because every one is offset by 143 nano-secs! Why? What's the benefit of that? That just takes longer to visually scan and parse, then mentally translate into, "about 50, 100, etc. usecs". In other words, it adds unnecessary confusion.
Let me see if I can provide an appropriate analogy. It's like Mr. Spock, from the Star Trek series... "Captain, the time interval was 11.97853 seconds. Approximately."
Kirk, "You mean about 12 seconds?"
Spock, "I believe that is what I said."
