Interfaces that don't report their latency?

Hey Rim and all you wonderful Wavemachinelabs peeps.
It would help me (and others) if you added a column to the interface chart that addresses whether an interface reports its latency accurately.
Is this possible?

I've been using the Akai EIE and the Griffin Studioconnect. They both seem to be accurate, but short of performing a loopback test (which I may have to do anyway just for peace of mind) it would be nice to know before buying any particular interface if it reported latency accurately.

Just a thought. Thanks.

Sounds like a good idea, but I think it would be difficult to keep something like this up to date, as firmware is always being updated.

Oh, I didn't realize firmware has an affect on this. Thanks.
