|my rough translation is below. any other suggestions or criticisms also gratefully accepted!|
Modelle sind veränderbar, Modelle sind eine Diskussionsgrundlage, Modelle sind Konkretisierungen vieler Ideen, die durchaus bereit sind, weitere Ideen und Konkretisierungen aufzunehmen. Modelle sind keine fixen Formulierungen, sondern *bekennen sich* sehr klar zu einem zeitlichen Ablaufdatum, sie *bekennen sich* zu ihrem Charakter einer Vorstufenbestimmung und sie suchen das kritisch betrachtende Gespräch.
Models are changeable, models are a basis for discussion, models are concretisations of many ideas, which are perfectly ready to incorporate other ideas and concretisations. Models are not fixed formulations but rather very clearly committed to a temporal expiration date, they are committed to their nature of a preliminary designation and they seek the critical contemplative dialogue.

Agree with your solution
I think "to be committed" is a satisfactory rendering of this term. I would say "expiry" rather than "expiration", though!
