Alternative 1 is the same as the suggestion 1 from the issue list.

What I meant to suggest in alternative 2 was that you instead of adding
three new optional attributes changes the syntax for the following
attributes to:
time-at-creation (integer(0:MAX) | dateTime)
time-at-processing (integer(0:MAX) | dateTime)
time-at-completion (integer(0:MAX) | dateTime)=20
