The problem with long DQ times is that people will make full use of them and a lot of matches will go two-three weeks a round (between two battlers and the ref) which won't really solve anything. Perhaps keep the current maximum (96 Hours iirc) but encourage use of a version of the 'Bowl exception rule - say if your DQ is X hours you can take an additional X hours a certain number of times dependent on how long the match is? Like, once for 1 or 2 mon, twice for 3 or 4 and thrice for 5 and 6?

I'm not altogether comfortable with allowing refs to enforce DQ but allow them to walk away with SP for what they've done so far if the battlers have exceeded their DQ time plus exception.
