Why no clock displayed?

I am pretty excited about the K3 coming out, it looks really good to me. One thing that has been slightly annoying me for a while now is that the kindle does not have the time displayed. The new screenshots don't have the time either and I was secretly hoping they would have added a clock at some point.

I loved that feature when reading on the iPad, it is very nice to have the time so handy so I can make a quick decision to continue reading or call it a night because it is getting late. I know the kindle displays the time when you press alt-T but that really isn't the same.

I am sure they must have considered it, they went to the trouble to add the alt-T option so it was definitely on their minds. I wonder if they have ever discussed that design decision anywhere? Anyone know if they have ever mentioned why they opted to not include an always on clock?
