    True, but the worst thing that can happen (if you use a positive
    value) is that the click sets the point rather than follows the link

If the timing can be distorted, it can be distorted in either
direction.  However, we don't see a lot of complaints that double
click doesn't work, so maybe it is not a serious problem.

    Hm, true, but at least on X, the timestamps are recorded by the X
    server, so it's not depending on emacs getting any cycles to process
    the clicks.

That seems to imply there is no real problem of this kind.
It was useful to consider the question, though.
