Default [Sorcery] Fire and Forget illusion

I'd like to put together an illusion spell for my Sorcerer based on the illusion advantage from powers. I'd like it to be a fire and forget spell (same as an affliction with fixed duration) where I would decide the nature of the illusion when cast and it would keep going until the duration expires or it is dispelled.

The illusion advantage doesn't have a default duration, so the fixed duration advantage doesn't help me here. Is there any way to set the duration of an advantage without a duration, such as "afflicting" the ground with an illusion?

Illusion specifically takes the Independent enhancement for this purpose. It's pretty much spot on what you want - gives the illusion a fixed duration and you don't need to pay attention to it. (Check out Powers page 108 for the full details)

I think it may just be the similar names confusing me a bit, but is the Independence modifier listed under illusion a specific application of the general Independent enhancement, or a separate advantage-specific enhancement?
