Thant's what I am doing[1] but I would like to know if there is a proper
method of doing so.

I suggest us to use this method as a standard way of doing it. This is
*necessary* for MIDI-BLE at least, where the packet provides timestamp

If that's the case, we can patch some main libraries to use it if it is
available, and update ALSA Sequencer documentation.
