    If it was set so you could not be timed out whilst your vacation setting was on rather than depending on opponenets being honourable it would go towards stopping alot of resentment .

    Which would cause a lot of games/tournaments to go on for longer.

    The site already has a good way of handling this sort of thing - the timebank. It's there, use it.

    Yes, but only for a limited amount of time which both players have agreed on. If you could use your vacation flag to avoid being timed out, you could prolong the game forever. It would make the time controls totally meaningless.
