Maybe you could determine, using average punt distance, average punt return distance, average yards-per-drive, average yards-per-successful field goal, etc., that punting from the 8 gives up X number of points more than punting from the 13, and preventing those X points is worth way more than a timeout. I just haven't seen any kind of convincing argument thereto.
