No, I was referring to latency (not jitter) as offset from delay. I didn't 
throw jitter into the discussion, I was making a distinction between 
and delay. Granted both jitter and latency are concepts involving timing 
uncertainty, however fundamentally different. Delay is far more simple, 
the measurements under discussion were all about delay (not latency, not 
jitter). But, it's all just a matter of convention - if you have no use 
the conventional distinction in terminology, by all means disregard it. 
Doing so however would not garner much credibility in an engineering
