Planned time for a task

it would be great if we could add a "planned time" when creating a task. I want planned time for two reasons:

1. It would work like timeboxing (or a Pomodoro) mechanism because we see time running down (a counter). I work more effectively if I know I only have X minutes/hours left for a task. Especially if the counter in the menu bar would show the time I have left for the task. Ideally we would get a notification when 75% of the time we have left are gone so we know it's time to wrap up.
2. It's a good training to estimate how long something will take. It would be super useful to visualize also the contrast between "planned time" and "actual time" in the e.g Pie Chart or Bar diagram.

Tyme2 offers a feature like this but fails at showing the counter and some other details Timelime gets right.
