My confusion stemmed from the that I'd only be able to query the duration on the auras on myself that I cast.

I was looking through the aura.lua code, saw only references to UnitBuff() and the like. Those functions only return durations on stuff cast by the player, so I thought that was the limitation. Getting information in a general way seems like the best method of doing things, so I didn't even think to search for a player specific version of those functions. GetPlayerBuffTimeLeft() is the ticket. Lesson learned. Thanks for the help!
