I'm currently designing a dashboard that allows a user to manage ANDSF policies. The Policy model allows for a number of start time/end time pairs to be added to it.

Currently, policies are created through a simple form. What would be the best way to design a form to allow the intuitive addition of zero or more time pairs? Also, if I am representing already created policies in a section of markup, what is the best way to represent a list of pairs?

For time pairs display using a timeline or a clock could be a nice experience(see here - Of course there is a great chance you couldn't avoid a textual display as well (for sorting, copy paste etc.). If it's not a long list, maybe something like this could work:
