>            Priority: Major
> Currently, a timestamp must be in the top-level of a possibly nested row and must have
a certain format. We should think about making this more flexible to cover most of the use
> A first solution could be to allow a DOT operator syntax: {{myfield.nested.timestamp}}
> Other cases might be:
> - The time could also be split into several field
> - Or needs to be parsed using a [date format syntax|https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-master/dev/table/sql.html#date-format-specifier].
