AF also says they have a maximum 3-hour stay. Is that enforced?
No, can't imagine that they enforce the 3-hour rule. After you check-in, you'll never have to interact with the front-desk person again. Staff come around to clean-up tables and set out new food/drink, but they're not keeping track of who's in the lounge.

Ditt - I've never been turned away ever, even when the lounge was pretty much at capacity in the afternoon around the Beijing/Shanghai flights.

The Terminal E The Club was tiny with barely any food or drink on offer. Alcohol on request, no on site bathroom. Wasn't crowded though. The new space says opening Fall 2017, but given that there wasn't even drywall up on the frames, I am doubtful.
Agreed on all counts. I visited The Club once. And don't plan on going back, other than if I needed a quiet(er) place to take a nap.
