Why only one minute, it's on a 1 minute timer completley indeterimined on whether or not the chunk is even loaded.

Why not just have it stay in it's chest? If they don't revive there'd be treasure on the map for players to find, which would also make it dangerous to open random treasure chests. Players who revive and go back to their items can do so legitmatley and pvpers dont need to dump an entire inv of potions to collect loot.

sounds intresting. but the fact that the player who died can get their items back whenever they want might be to OP. like if you die a lava pool the chest will stay there and you wouldn't lose your items. But with the current system you would after sometime. and i think the dead chests was added so player could quickly look through the stuff off a fallen teammate or a opponent. and not realy to safe all items on death. but it might be a good idea indeed.

Death chests were originally created to prevent campfire players from stealing loot from just-murdered people. Otherwise your loot would simply drop on the ground and get picked up or despawned accordingly.

Remind me how it works now.  Is assume it is Campfire that does this since you said it was from gmx.  I read the wiki on Campfire, but it doesn't explain how deaths turn your items into a chest.

It's called DeathChests. It's part of Hardcore. Campfire is just the protection thing. When you die two chests appear and your stuff goes in the chests. After 60 seconds the chests break and your stuff falls on the ground.

Has there been any more consideration in extending the timer?

I don't think so, no.
