Re: CFC - Timeouts SC

As the proposed Level is AAA and thus the security objections of extending the message for the respond time will not be applicable anymore I would suggest to still look if we can add this here.

Informing about the Timeouts (and possibly the time you’ll have to extend this / 20 seconds…) but not providing a way to extend this if you’re not able to respond in limited time would be a missed opportunity.

If (20 seconds) security is not the issue and if the default is 20 seconds to respond BUT 40 or 60 or … would also be an option to choose from we solve one of the core issues this SC is about anyway.

I still don't understand the relevancy of the second part of the SC if the condition is technology highly unlikely to be achievable, cannot be efficiently tested for (who has time to wait 24 hours), or even unlikely to be failed due to the warning alternative that's most likely going to be preferred, but since this is a AAA SC, I'll still give it my +1.
