You should name the type timestamp if you want to imply dt + n == dt + n seconds. datetime + n is commonly understood as dt + n *days*.
Is this just an mxDateTime convention, or is it in wider use? (URLs of docs of other languages / libraries would really help to convince me!)
I'm afraid that this really is the de-facto standard. However, lets be clear; is t=t+1 adding 1 (calendar) day or 24 hours (86400 seconds)?
