If we no longer do a modeswitch at the point where we start the countdown, a
timeout of 3 may be good. On many machines it just takes too long for the
modeswitch to finish or for screenreaders to kick in.

We do it in hibernate to protect you from data corruption. If we allowed you
to boot something else the risk of modifying a file system you had mounted in
your Linux session that wasn't quite umounted cleanly can lead to nasty data
corruption which is a bad bad thing. Again here, if we stop doing the
countdown in a graphical mode it will get even shorter.
