You can't have it both ways. Either the value is polled or it's reported via 
asynchronous events.

It made no sense to have separate GET_TIME and GET_NORMAL_TIME, and it would 
make no sense to have separate GET_TIME polled and NPT as an event. They are 
by definition one and the same thing: the time to show to the user.

And it does not seem to belong in SetPCR either way.
