Is this a good idea for a counter-offer?

I interviewed for a job, all went really well, and I was told they would offer me the position, but I wanted too much money. So I tried to work some negotiating magic, and I'd like input on my counter-offer and if other people have done this and if it works like I hope.

My counter-offer is basically the max salary they could offer me ($7k less than I asked for), plus a list of concrete items to be reviewed in six months, where my salary will be increased by at least 5%. I haven't heard back yet if they are going to go for this, but I just wanted to get some input on if this was a good idea, if anyone else had done something like this, anything to watch out for, etc.
