It seems that I was not clear.

To implement lockout duration functionnality, we must store 2 type of 

1 - lockout duration, which is part of account policy, which is global
2 - lockout time, which is the time the user account was locked out. In 
order to be able to unlock the account after the lockout duration time 
has elapsed. This information is specific to *each* user.
