Mythfrontend can read that data out of the database, so there has never 
been any need for that capability.  If you want some custom file in a 
3rd party format, you're going to have to go into the database 
(recordedmarkup) and generate it yourself.

MythTV uses frame accurate markup, and was actually the basis of 
comskip.exe, so that one would probably be the easiest to do.  Anything 
else, and you either have to parse the video file to get the framerate, 
or fake it from the seekdata (recordedseek) framecount and file 
duration, and use that to estimate timestamps.
