So, to summerize what the other people have replied:
1. TIME of an event is not part of the GEDCOM standard. The GEDCOM you paste
here is hence not GEDCOM.
2. The CHAN tag has a subordinate DATE and TIME. I don't know if gramps
supports CHAN on Gedcom import. You can check by going to the column editor
of a view, and clicking to see the change date of an object. This is however
not what you want, CHAN is when a record was last changed.
3. You can do a feature request to support time on event. Not sure this is
that useful as a specific field.
4. Best would be to use the attribute tag of the event in Gramps to store
this, however, this event attribute have no equivalent in GEDCOM, so you
loose this info on export to GEDCOM.
5. You can do a feature request to support import of TIME in Gedcom to
appear in the attribute tag, and to allow export of this attribute back to
TIME on export. This is all not very standards approved, so only usefull if
it seems several GEDCOM programs have started to use TIME in Date.
