...but it seems that the window is about 15 seconds max. Am I missing something or is it not in the realm of digital cameras?

Many dslrs have a bulb mode.

The CoolPix 8800 has a 10min bulb I think.

I don't know if anynon dslrshave a full bulb mode, but with their tiny sensors the noise would probably be terrible.

Yes DSLR's can do a bulb exposure, the exposure can last as long as you want it to, or however long the batteries will allow.

The following I do not believe is yet available for DSLR's, but i would like to see it included in the near future

Take a Picture, Stop the exposure and then start it again later.

This is possible with Film Cameras, however, i have yet to see a digital camera be able to do this.
