My frustration (and possible confusion) regarding these "delay/interfere" situations is trying to figure out when to go directly to a technical foul and when to warn (if not already warned), knowing not to only warn if less than five seconds left.

Regarding interfering with the ball after a goal (only touching it, tapping it a very short distance away, knocking it a slightly longer distance away, tossing it a longer distance away, throwing it a very long distance, kicking it to the moon, etc.).

Sometimes we're expected to ignore.

Sometimes we warn (if not already warned).

Sometimes we go directly to a technical foul with no warning.
I'm still not seeing your point. If it's 5 or less seconds there are multiple acts that we either ignore or go straight to a T, but we do not warn for them.
