I think Hixie's proposal is fine as-is, since the requirements are  
SHOULD-level, and therefore if a UA can't meet the time range  
guidelines or has some good reason not to, it won't fail to be  
conformant. On the other hand, this makes them just suggestions, and  
they are hard to reasonably test for, so perhaps they should just be  
a non-normative hint.
