I agree this is useful, and it would potentially help with timekeeping.

LibreOffice can also do this, and you can get phone apps that show this
info & also double as presenter remotes.

The problem with this in practice is that various presenters insist on
using their native PPT/KEY/ODP format from the presenter laptop
(conversions to PDF are never 100%). Which means we have likely to solve
this requirement for all of Powerpoint, Keynote, LibreOffice and Adobe.
Which is doable, but is going to require quite a bit of extra fiddling
from the person driving the laptop..
