I have a comment on Jim Hafners details (in quotes):

"Two additional details about the timers:
- Initial timer values should be persistent (non-volatile).
-Timers should always restart after resets.

The only real problems I see is the requirement for an additional timer."

(a) If the timer should always restart after resets, someone could prevent
the old key from being overridden by doing resets on the bus just a little
more frequently than the initial timer value. If the initial timer value is
something like 5 or 10 minutes, this probably isn't likely for normal use.
If the initial timer value is more than an hour, this could be a problem.

(b) Do you include logins and/or logouts (on FC interface) in the same
category as a reset? Or LIP where everyone simply reconfigures to possibly
a new ID?
