Here's another draft of it addressing Alix Li's issue and also that the
proposed wording above does not require notification of how much lime is in
the time limit. Only that there is one.

======
For each time limit set by the content where user-entered data can be lost
and the time limit is known, the user is advised about the time limit and
how long it is at the start of the process.
=====

Cheers,
David MacDonald
