It also doesn't say what happens if Emacs didn't get any CPU time when
the timer would have run -- which is a more general description of the
situation you mention.

If instead

  Perform an action at time TIME.

we say

  Perform an action at or after time TIME.

will this take care of the issue you are raising?
