> Flink currently provides only one build-in timestamp extractor, which assumes strictly
ascending timestamps. In real world use cases, timestamps are almost never strictly ascending.
> Therefore, I propose to provide an utility watermark extractor which is generating watermarks
with a fixed-time trailing.
> The implementation should keep track of the highest event-time seen so far and subtract
a fixed amount of time from that event time.
> This way, users can for example specify that the watermarks should always "lag behind"
10 minutes.
