Can you suggest a preferable wording that would work and would be something 
the PPMC can manage?

The PPMC is not empowered to agree to a clause that reads, "The ASF will
grant 90 days to someone".  Only the board and officers can make
commitments on behalf of the org.

That's just the legal side of things and is not the same as the question
of whether one should expect the ASF, should any of its entities decide
to take the forums down, provide advance warning or migration codepath.

The relevant entities in this case include IPMC, Infra, and Board.
