A request: add Avg. Time on Page as a metric that can be used in Calculated Metrics

Right now, Avg. Time on Page isn't one of the predefined metrics that Calculated Metrics allows to be used in a formula for a new calculated metric, but it'd be great if it was. (I want to multiply Avg. Time on Page by Page Views to get a number for the cumulative time that readers spend with pages on the site that's more accurate than Time on Page, as Time on Page doesn't count the time on a page from users who look at only a single page and leave. Avg. Time on Page doesn't count them, either, but I can use it a sample size and extrapolate from it.) That's it! All I need! Help me, some magnanimous Google engineer!

My mistake—I meant to put this in the Google Analytics forum, not AdWords (where it seems to have ended up). I'll create a new post over there.
