WTH can't I delay a manual buttonpress (or other change) in the UI?

There are so many times that I would like to press a switch or change some setting with a delay, so that the lights turns off in 10 minutes, or the pump for my hot tub can get started right away, but also set to turn off in 90 minutes (when I excpect to take the actual bath).
There are so many things that just isn’t possible to automate 'cause it differs from time to time.
Long press on a button/switch/whatever could bring up a timer where I could set a one-shot delay for that switch/press.

Just add the datetime or a input number entity on the dashboard and use the change of state of this entity to trigger an automation.

As far as I know it’s not possible to notice a long press on the dashboard.
