L1 SC1:

"the time-out is part of an 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-WCAG20-20050630/#competitiveactivitydef>activity 
where timing is essential (for example, competitive gaming or time-based 
testing) and time limits can not be extended further without invalidating 
the activity."

People with disabilities can get time extensions and the test is not 
invalidated.  I'm concerned that this is so tightly worded that 
invalidation will be used as an excuse to not accommodate.

This might raise awareness.  Would it work?

"  .... time limits and disability accommodations can not be extended 
further without invalidating the activity."
