Timestamps?

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, but has the topic of putting timestamps in the transcripts been raised? Last time I was checking a transcript (for another website) I found it useful to note the time at 'paragraph breaks.' Of course, this won't be exact. For example, would the time shown be the start, middle or end of the pause? [05:02] (or [0:05:02]?)

The timestamps would also be useful for those who wanted to hear or rehear a particular part.

Finally, the timestamps also might help to break the episodes into bite-sized parts for transcribers. For example, if someone only wanted to transcribe part of an episode, the timestamps would help later contributors know what parts have been transcribed.
