Sounds like a reasonable thing to do.

The catch there is that those caps may end up being delayed up to 5s
more than they would have, since schedule_delayed always uses a 5s
delay. That delay could be made more dynamic if it becomes an issue.

Maybe have the schedule_delayed callers calculate and pass in a timeout
and schedule the next run for that point in the future? Then
delayed_work could schedule the next run to coincide with the timeout of
the next entry on the list.
