[I expect DNS resolve time might be very tricky to measure in Java]

The docs would need to be updated to state whether a sampler supports
the metric or not.

Connect time is currently included in both latency and elapsed.

The simplest would be to just add connect as a separate time, but not
subtract it from latency or elapsed.
This would allow further analysis without changing behaviour.
Maybe add an option to perform the subtraction.
I don't think we should change the default behaviour.

I can see its use and am not against it, but it needs quite a lot of
work to implement fully.
