On the other hand, are there so many use cases where we really need the 32-bit dynamic? These timers have 16-bit linear prescaler (any value from 1 to 65536), therefore plenty of room to adapt counting period to the application. You have maybe particular cases in mind?

NXP already has a broad portfolio of Cortex-M0 microcontrollers that have been shipping for 2 years and are lower power than these F0 parts. They have USB and CAN options, small packages (2x2 mm) and even SO and DIP packages. And there are 32-bit timers!

“The Cortex-M0 processor offers a perfect opportunity for 8- and 16-bit MCU developers to achieve the performance benefits of 32-bit, without sacrificing power or area..." is marketing "true lies", but small potatoes compared to interoperability with 32-bit code riddled with int size dependencies hidden in implicit casts. Bypassing 16-bit means only biting the bullet once.

The claim of ["The PWM 16-bit and 32-bit timers integrated on-chip have capabilities including 17 capture/compare input/outputs mapped on up to 28 pins"] becomes the rather underwhelming ONE 32 bit timer. ["up to five general-purpose 16-bit timers, a 32-bit timer"] Why is it that so many 32 bit vendors, persist in still putting so many 16 bit timers in their parts ?
