I don't think we need to worry about it, but in fact we wouldn't need to
dead-reckon.  All we would need it for would be to put a ceiling on
claims from noisy GPS about what accelerations we could have
experienced.  If the GPS sample says we jumped 100m in 1s, but the
accels didn't really see anything, we could ignore or meddle with the
GPS sample.

Whether that is any better than just filtering between previous and
later samples I doubt.
