If you really want to be able to make this modular, I'd be inclined to
make the check_timer_slack hook just default to NULL, rather than
introducing dummy_timer_slack_check()

Don't we want to keep the min/max applied hierarchically as well? i.e.
a child can't set its min/max outside the range of its parents?

Better to make this just fail the initialization if someone else has
already claimed the hook, rather than crashing.
