I agree that before-init-time and after-init-time are better for
consistency, and I also think that emacs-init-time would be consistent
with emacs-uptime regardless of the distinction between a time and
an interval.

So there is the difference: optimism is to expect years in the Emacs
running time but pessimism is to expect the same in the Emacs startup
duration :)
