Andy, there is a p_time parameter for a shipping method, and this is how I use it:

ups_ground: UPS Ground

   criteria weight
   p_time   5 to 7 days
   min      1
   max      10
   cost     e Can not ship item by UPS Ground.

You can access that in the shipping iteration and format it as you wish. I do not know if p_time supports ITL... it may? Anyways, you could always make two similar shipping methods, then use perl in your criteria to rule the first one out if your shipmessage exists.

Also, in your example your either/or is backwards.
