If I understand correctly, you're looking for a new wazn for Vrkhazian? Sure, I'll give it a try:

htoCCeCiy- - the period of time spent doing verb X

s-ḡ-b to rot → htosḡebiy- - the period of time it takes sth. to rot

I suggest a further derivation htoCCeyyiCiy- which means the same except that the time it took for X to happen was longer than expected.

htosḡeyyibiy- - the time (longer than expected) that it took sth. to finally rot

[:)] No need to mourn. Sōkoan is sleeping, awaiting its turn in the redo queue. I believe that, when it does make a comeback, it will be a lot more faithful to the Northeast Asian sprachbund it was originally meant to be a part of.
