Some of these wordings seem to depend on the circumstances, and to assume that caster and subject are in conversation.
I'm trying to figure out what would be a good level for "until these words chiselled in stone are gone."
Well, if the subject is present and sees the words, but we presume they're prevented from destroying them immediately, about -9. Staging an expedition to get to wherever the words are and destroying them should be possible in a year. Even if the subject doesn't want them gone, somebody presumably will.
"...until I, the caster, die."
Presuming nobody actually has motive to kill the caster to end the working, -10 for two years, following Terminally Ill on B.158.
