Should be fine that way if promptInc does not change. Such as..

function(promptInc) {
  setTimeout(function() { advrk_clearPrompt(promptInc)}..
  .. nothing modifying promptInc

However, if something changes the value of promptInc before the
timeout is triggered, you'll have to wrap it around another function.
