Is there a time out requirement?

Is there a specification defined for how long it should take for the name server on a switch to remove an entry...

after a Fibre Channel device on a port is disconnected?

I am not aware of a timing requirement for state change postings in FC switches. This doesn't mean they don't exist however. If you want to dig into this further, visit the Website for the T11 committee. Look for the documents on FC-SW*.
