proc dates?

I was just thinking--would it be possible or
practical to 'datestamp' the files in the proc tree
not based on the last time the directory was read, but
upon the last time the information in the 'file'

Like, for instance: those of us who get dynamically allocated
ip addresses could ls -l /proc/net and 'see' the 'time'
it was that we last dialed in (i.e. the last time the routing
tables changed).......I'm sure there are also other uses for
this idea..

Think about it..
