I think the contract is just fine for his current situation. If it doesn't say anything about turnaround times or means of contact, he can just pick one of the schemes that have been suggested that suits him, and if the client feels that's not sufficiently "available," he can ask them what they consider "sufficient," tell them how many hours per day he'll be billing them for that level of availability and they can accept that or a reduced level for a reduced number of billed hours.

What would be bad would be if the contract was more precise about what constitutes "availability" without specifying that it could be billed for in addition to actual work done.
