I think time tells are impossible to use.
You know that they are taking time to make their action, but you don't know why.
Are they playing at 6 tables and were distracted for a moment?
Did their kid come up and ask them a question?
Did they spill their drink and are desperately trying to sop it up?
Are they trying to decide what action to take?
The reason it is not a "tell" is that you cannot tie the action to the reasoning behind the action.
I know for me I am often late to act on tables because I am cycling through them and get to one action with a few seconds left due to working through a lot of stuff.
I wouldn't worry to much about timing tells.
