Hoping not to impose any further, I wonder what can be said, or thought about what you are trying to impose? (Maybe impose nothing where there is or is not (or even might be) order...?)
Now I've seen a map in one episode, and I'm sure the games for the verse have something. But many episodes explicately say the day/dates: Faith, B4x15, after coma waking and B7x07, Conv/DeadPeople, shows it as a title.
And there isn't any talk of new story lines, or books, virtual scripts, or even a question/post not too long ago here about what the time in Angel 6 here is left at...
A strong background allows for many branches of arcs, allowing a true talent (Like Joss) to work was he does best. JRR Tolkien spent his life working the timeline of that 'Verse, no doubt he'd still be working on if he was alive (and he still might be working on it for all we know).
I've already said more than I thought I was. Fluid time in crossover episodes (crossover meaning A to B and B to A, I think you mean0. To some, it is one large story. But what you mean by Fluid Time is not clear? Take the Faith arc in Buffy S4 & Angel S1... B4x15/B4x16, This Year's Girl and Who Are You? : A1x18/A1x19, Five By Five and Sanctuary). Also, Angel's supsequent appearance in Bx20, "The Yoko Factor".
Some people have the collection of scripts, which probably give more clearer clues. I was just trying to understand the "Nineteen Days Earlier" message in Angel 5x02 "Just Rewards", kind of significant as the flashback was the destruction of the Sunnydale Hellmouth and Spike's apparent burning up, sacrificing himself, atonement (for whatever reasons).
Nineteen days earlier, meant that any subsequent story had to get Buffy to Europe, Xander to Africa, etc pretty quickly (unless you assume Andrew's story making). But I digress.
Btw: I can imagine what you may mean by Fluid Time. Maybe, like the Oracle Bro/Sis taking back a "day", or The Wish Bizarro World. Even Dawn's memory of Angel and Faith. Yet, the Vampire/Willow (from Bizarro World) did sire Sandy in the Bronze. That same Sandy/Vampire is who tempted Riley later on.
Digressing again, but I guess you don't know what the "Nineteen Days Earlier" might mean.
Sorry for the diarant (a new word? diatribe-rant?).
