So if it's 'however' the "ie" should be "eg" :)

I'd rather drop the time element, as John proposed, as we could discuss 
for ever and will always be somewhat of a moot point when we come to 
review proposed SCs. I do understand and value the intention, it's just 
so hard to quantify. Perhaps make it make time one of a set of things to 
consider when reviewing without attempting to make a judgement call in 
the criteria?

I also think Glenda's clarification of ways of testing adds value so 
could be added.
