About using words with extended ranges, there are English examples:-
"For a kickoff" for "for a start" used where football is not involved. (British usage)
"Under my thumb" and "wrapped around my little finger" started in falconry and referred to the route of a hawk's leash when it is sitting on my fist.
Usage could easily extend from the start of an opera to the starts of other things.

          would have been better. A
          bI'reS is the beginning of some artistic
          performance, not a job.
While I don't necessarily
          disagree with you, paq'batlh (paq'raD, Canto 14, Stanza 6)
          does give a precedent for using bI'reS as a timestamp.
