The vertical lines representing games won or lost by timeout should be orange (say) instead of green on players' rating charts.

I agree (i.e. I disagree with murrow), for reasons I have mentioned before - some people let games time out because they know they will lose, and some people resign their games rather than letting them time out when they leave the site or take a break, so whether a game was won by timeout or because the opponent resigned doesn't really tell much.
I don't agree. A win is a win, they should all stay the same. Or better yet: War is war, loser. 🙂

i'm not suggesting such losses should 'count' any less.
i just want to be able to see which is which.
i understand why some people don't care about this, but what i'm suggesting wouldn't lose anything, would it?
i take your point nordlys that it is not always meaningful but i'd say 80% of the time time-outs are genuine running-out-of-time situations, and resignations are giving-up-a-lost-position situations.

With your idea you could search for challenges against people who loose a lot of there games by time-outs.

It would also help clan leaders decide whether to accept a new player (if they time out often then they could potentially lose you a lot of challenges),
