And not only that, it makes autokill clients a good idea (if still

If I had known an existing term for asynchronous unit moves, I would
have used that.  :)

It would be a lot like playing your typical card game.  There would need
to be one "unit move space" and one "whole turn space", which means two
different "turn done" buttons.  "units done" and "turn done".

If you want to be a little cheaper in terms of code you could end the
turn when the last player's unit moves were done.  I'd be happy to play
it without timeouts.
