> KafkaIO appears to use an incorrect lower bound for it's initial watermark with respect
> KafkaIO's initial watermark:
> new Instant(Long.MIN_VALUE) -> -9223372036854775808
> new Instant(TimeUnit.MICROSECONDS.toMillis(Long.MIN_VALUE)) -> -9223372036854775
> The difference is that the last three digits have been truncated due to the micro to
millis conversion.
> This difference can cause errors in runners that assert that the input watermark can
never regress as KafkaIO gives a value below the lower bound when no messages have been received
yet. For consistency it would probably be best for it to use BoundedWindow.TIMESTAMP_MIN_VALUE.
