Boil time for starter?

I know about the picture with 1/2cup DME + water + 10mins, but I was wondering: if I boil for fewer than 10mins will there be any down side?

I have an electric tea kettle, and it will boil 1L...

Yeah, I skimmed over the introduction at first; I came back to say that the reason he wound up doing this makes a lot more sense than trying to avoid using a hydrometer.
