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 will let you use 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!
