In the SCJD faq it says:

Should I purchase both parts (the exams and assignment) at the same time?

You should be aware that there is no time limit on completing the assignment, however vouchers have a time limit.


I just purchased the SCJD Assignment 2 days ago and received this in my email:



...

Follow the links to download your assignment.

You have one year to complete the SCJD assignment.

...



So I checked on these sites (Canada and US):

http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-252A.xml
http://ca.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-252A.xml

And found they both say:


Time limit: 12 months from assignment download


Has something changed or have I misread something... In the event something has changed, perhaps the FAQ should change as well.

Cheers,

It's true, there is a time limit now. You can read more on this in this thread.

Should the FAQ be changed / updated?

Sure - go for it. It is a wiki, and anyone who can post here can improve it.
