You're right. More recent versions of Pd (>= 0.45?) have an updated
[metro] that supports many more ways to specify time and the restriction
was lowered. However, the [metro] in any available version of
Pd-extended is still limited to 1ms. 

I don't understand why you use [realtime] and not [timer] to illustrate
your point. [timer] gives you consistent values (logical time) while
[realtime] is very jittery and shows just some random value depending on
the current cpu usage and probably other factors. When you render a
soundfile, the logical time is actually the one that matters.
