"Won't it present problems if the daughter needs to reauthorize the computer for her own use before 90 days,"
No. The 90 day limit ONLY applies to redownloading purchases from iTunes..
So if she were to redownload purchases from the father's account then she'd have to wait 90 days to redownload form her own account. and the computer can be authorized for multiple iTunes account (pretty sure it's 5) . You don't need to later reauthorize for first account if you authorize for a different account.
More discussion on 90 day wait period - https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6094005 - disable automatic downloads so message doesn't appear when using multiple accounts.
Most people don't see the "re"
Is this new? Because at the time this was clearly not the case - I was not RE downloading content, but actually downloading content I had purchased right then and there.
Regardless, you did answer my question. This policy still exists, so I won't be purchasing from Itunes. Thanks so much for your reply.
iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4627 - In connection with, "When you turn on iTunes Match or Automatic Downloads, or when you download past purchases on an iOS device or computer, that device or computer becomes associated with your Apple ID. ... Once a device or computer is associated with your Apple ID, you cannot associate that device or computer with another Apple ID for 90 days." It specifically mentions that in the context of the three conditions mentioned at the start but not for regular new purchases. Many people use computers regularly with different AppleIDs, just avoid having to re-download material too frequently (should never be necessary if you have a backup).
I don't know if it ever was different or if you just thought it was. For at least a year I've been seeing posts where people confuse the conditions and have been corrected by other ASC helpers.
You talk about a "computer" - but unless I am mistaken (and I am sorry if I am) your profile only lists "devices"
If you do have a computer, now that iTunes 11.3.1 is out have you had any better results?

oh, sorry if that was not clear- i am using a Mac mini (not the most recent version) connected to my tv with an external hard drive.
Thanks for checking in, I appreciate it.
Hi again Lisa,
Having a degree in a field that did not have an overly comprehensive emphasis on legalese, I really can't speak to the issue(s) that you are trying to "iron out" w/Apple. I was able to find the following, however, if that could be helpful to you per your review.
The aforementioned page also includes the following link:
Finally, I happened to find this PDF which may or may not be of help:
