If there were a timestamp, the user must convert from UTC to local time 
zone, and then compare to his current time. and then he knows the data 
is x minutes/seconds old.

On the other hand, a click of a button or command-r is less effort, and 
yields data no more than a second or two old.

Mental gymnastics and old data, or a button click and fresh data. To me 
the choice is OBVIOUS!

If you have any reason to need the current data, just reload. Get over 
it Bob!
