Personally I think duration is the information you are likely to *want* 
and as stop can be derived from start and duration it makes sense to 
include those two. Not a big deal however (at Resolver Systems we use 
the duration to track tests that slow down and to analyse how to reduce 
overall test run time by looking at the long running tests).
