However, it should never penalize players for slow reading, pondering upon dialogues etc. Basically, tying it to real play time isnīt a good idea, because it hinders other gameīs apects (playing evil character on the first playthrough of MotB, anyone).
Completely agree with this. Not the main quest but a couple of time-sensitive side-quests here and then would really add to the choices and feeling the world is "alive".
