Why did they have to expand the nonce value range?

My understanding is that at a certain point, once hardware passed the 4 GH/s level, the 4 billion possible values for the nonce became insufficient in bitcoin mining, because a good rig could exhaust them all in less than a second, and then had to wait until the next second for the timestamp value to change and then try the next 4 billion.

The thing I don’t get, though, is why they couldn’t adjust the timestamp in increments of less than one second? What about milliseconds and nanoseconds? Why not adjust that input instead of the nonce range?
