    Excellent idea. With some skills I've messed around with in and out of development, I've needed a couple extra seconds to think.

    Simple example: The well known Jeopardy skill and other trivia skills. It gets a bit distracting to have Alexa's reprompt/timeout happen when I'm trying to think of an answer, so being able to say "hey Alexa wait a sec" would take care of that.

    Or sometimes, people might open a skill (without any intent initially) and need some time to think about why exactly they opened it. In a perfect world, people might think about it before opening every single time without fail, but sometimes, at least in my experience, people will open a skill because they know they need something from it, but haven't exactly worded it in their head what they want. I've had a good laugh a couple times hearing someone go "Uh........" after loading it and having alexa interrupt their thought process because of the timeout. Haha.
