Hi Alexander,

  It sounds like what you really want to do isn't to associate the
reload-timer with a particular buffer, but rather with a particular page
or website.  This sounds like a good candidate for a page-mode.  It
should be possible to make a kind of "generic page-mode" such that it
could be user-configured to work with any website.  Most of the existing
page-modes are for a particular website, but modules/page-modes/media.js
may be a good example of a generic page-mode.
