Chris Arthur (get well soon!) suggested that the license for
considering time alone to be the measure of labour in the
context of the LTV is that capitalists care only about time.

Hmmm. Would you care to put that to the test - in anything
other than a tenured academic position, no personal offence
intended - by goofing around for 8 hours, and seeing how long
you continued to receive a paycheck?

I take it for granted that when we say "time" we mean
intensity-adjusted time.
