Yes, really need to have a configurable / session time, which can be a little longer.
Saving current session data to a database, and re-reading on restarting the skill is just TOO frustrating for a user. I can understand the reasons for not have an extremely long session time, but currently it is just too short for the type of interactions that I am building. The use of time-breaks in SSML will not be a sensible solution. PLEASE allow a more sensible, configurable session time, even if is only 5 times greater than the current limit!
