Yes, your suggest looks reasonable. Only issue maybe is not easy to called by program. After all, the interface is called by program more ofter then by human being.
I would like to change the way what you suggest, let see if other guys agree with your idea.
Before that, I'll submit another change as per Geert's suggest that change HZ to Hz.
