Fair enough, I just wanted to make sure you knew about that variable.
(As I told, I wasn't aware of it until recently.  And the only reason I
learned about it, btw, was the thought "something like this /should/ be
possible", and it's Org-mode, after all, so obviously it was.

Notice that your proposed solution (while reasonable from the point of
view of how C-c C-y works) might be cumbersome – you'd need to go to the
place where you have the :LOGBOOK: drawer, open it, move to the first
line and hit C-c C-y.  A faster way to get the same information might be

C-c C-x C-o
[the info you wanted gets displayed in the echo area]
C-u C-c C-x C-i

if you don't mind splitting the clocking line in :LOGBOOK: into two.
(AFAIU, you also run into the risk of dropping one minute of clocking
time if you happen to do this at hh:mm:59 or something.)
