Personally I'd prefer if the time ones were all together.
The odd alignment isn't uncommon when introducing new items
with unexpectedly long names into a previously aligned list
of items. Of course you will want to drop the excess blanks

Not sure about commenting, but at the very least the
description will imo want to point out the (intentional)
difference. You shouldn't imply readers know in advance
what a subsequent patch may use this for.
