27.3 [time.clock.req] uses the word "native" in several places, but doesn't define it. What is a "native duration"?
[ 2009-05-10 Howard adds: ]
The standard uses "native" in several places without defining it (e.g. 5.13.3 [lex.ccon]). It is meant to mean "that which is defined by the facility", or something along those lines. In this case it refers to the nested time_point and duration types of the clock. Better wording is welcome.
[ Batavia (2009-05): ]
Move to Open pending proposed wording from Pete.

I see that 126.96.36.199 [thread.timedmutex.requirements]/3 says:
Precondition: If the tick period of rel_time is not exactly convertible to the native tick period, the duration shall be rounded up to the nearest native tick period.
I would prefer to see that adapted as well. Following the same style as the proposed resolution I come up with
Precondition: If the tick period of rel_time is not exactly convertible to the
nativetick period , the duration shall be rounded up to the nearest nativetick period .

[ Post-Rapperswil, Howard provides wording: ]
Moved to Tentatively Ready with revised wording from Howard Hinnant after 5 positive votes on c++std-lib.

Change 27.3 [time.clock.req]:
1 A clock is a bundle consisting of a
nativeduration, a nativetime_point, and a function now() to get the current time_point. The origin of the clock's time_point is referred to as the clock's epoch. A clock shall meet the requirements in Table 56.
Table 56 — Clock requirements Expression Return type Operational semantics C1::rep An arithmetic type or a class emulating an arithmetic type The representation type of the nativeduration and time_point. C1::period ... ... C1::duration chrono::duration<C1::rep, C1::period> The nativeduration type of the clock. C1::time_point chrono::time_point<C1> or chrono::time_point<C2, C1::duration> The nativetime_point type of the clock. C1 and C2 shall refer to the same epoch. ...
