This property associates an instance of EXX Intention to Apply with the time constraint foreseen by the intending party for the actual application of the planned activities. The intending party may vary the time constraint over time. In case a newly set time constraint narrows down a previously set time constraint, one may regard both constraints as being simultaneously true and consistent. In case the newly set time constraint exceeds the previous one (typically delaying the foreseen time of application), we may talk about a modification of the overall intention to apply. This modification should be regarded as an intention in its own right, but being part of an overall instance of EXX Intention to Apply, which continues to be maintained.
