Fair enough but as you have said yourself, there are quite a few variances with times. Therefore, while the 'solid and reliable evidence' can be applied to actual sequence of events, it is much more difficult to do that with the timelines of those events. All that can be done is to get as close as possible.
As I have said before, the one thing that I don't want to do is to truncate times for events between the 'lurch' and the break-up simply to allow more time for the maneuvers of the stern section afterwards.
I think a lot of it comes down to making sure that the post-break movements happen slowly enough to look natural. It’s easy for an intact ship to drop down quickly; a mangled stern that needs to still go vertical and spin around? That might take a bit more time. Just my take on things.
