Would those that have implemented and/or deployed the above specs  
please comment on the LC review period length for these specs?

If we already have multiple implementations of a spec, I think the  
spirit of the Recommendation track process suggests a shorter LC  
period (say 2 months given the time of the year) and then (assuming  
no substantive comments) moving the spec to Candidate.
