It's really an edge case, but the watchdog NMI is pretty painful.

That seems like it would add a lot of complexity for this edge case. Maybe
it would be acceptible to use the safety valve like my first example, or
something like the below which will tune the period up until it doesn't
overrun for ever. The down side of this one is it does change the user's
settings, but that could be preferable to an NMI crash.
