Ok that makes sense for a false start, although I would worry that an official wouldn't recognize that this was intentional for at least a play which that 25 seconds would be pretty valuable.  Seems like a little loophole that could be exploited.

What about drawing the defense offsides? Lets say we get a first down and the clock starts to run after the ball is set.  Then during the cadence the defense jumps offsides, does the clock reset to 25 seconds and continue to run just as before the penalty?
