RE: Follow up from the meeting on Issue 14: timeouts

I think the SC requiring advance warning for time limits which states the amount of time available (if this time limit is known by the author) is a viable SC (or viable addition to 2.2.1)

[Jason] It’s viable, but I’m not enthusiastic about it, as it doesn’t solve the user’s problem. Could we better confine the use of options 2 and 3 in SC 2.2.1?
That is, can we state the circumstances in which it’s acceptable to use option 2 or 3? At the moment, it’s entirely at the author’s discretion, whereas from the user’s point of view, either the first option (the time limit can be removed) or the last option (it’s more than 20 hours in duration) is far preferable. The exceptions are outside the content author’s control and so would remain in any case.
