You are on the right track. Though watching auras with UnitAura on units by GUID requires that unit to have a token(player, target, raid1-40, party1-5, nameplate1-40, etc...) at nearly all times. Caching the duration on UNIT_AURA can help circumvent this while waiting for the CLEU_AURA_REMOVED trigger for fall off. That CLEU event can also be used to start the timer when the aura is removed.

Since your goal is to watch the aura AND a time period afterward your best bet is to register the CLEU event in UNIT_AURA if you cache any auras. Un-registering CLEU after all auras fall off will prevent excessive overhead from scanning the combat log continuously.
