Details

With a primitive or two exposed, the timer module can/should be in the jetpack process only.
Note that in order to land e10s support in the Jetpack SDK for bug 567703--specifically, to run async tests in the Jetpack SDK--we needed timer support, so for the time being we've got a gimpy timer "placeholder" in addon processes that implements setTimeout() and clearTimeout() by message-passing with the chrome process. Once this bug is fixed, though, we can remove the gimpy version and use the native implementation.
