Testing conversion goals is impossible

When I set up a new conversion goal it is impossible to test because of the 3 hour refresh window. It ads a lot of time to the development cycle.

Ideally I'd like to define a goal, then trigger the goal on the website, then go back to PA and see if the goal was triggered. If not, it means I have a problem with my website PA code event tracking, or I've defined a conversion goal incorrectly.

You currently send emails when conversion goals don't fire (nice), but it assumes a LOOONG cycle for development and testing which isn't realistic in today's rapid environment.

Suggestions:
1) Add a button to each conversion goal to refresh immediately. Or at the least, queue it to the front of the refresh (so it happens within a few minutes).
2) The conversion goal text says "Refreshed every 3 hours" which is useless because I don't know when the goals were refreshed. Instead the text should read.
Last refreshed: (date time), next scheduled refresh: (date time).
