Per Amanensia on Form of Defense II
The purpose of the "Screech" listed effect is to prevent stacking of the "Form of ..." effects.
All of the Plane of Time "Form of ..." effects have Screech(1) in slot 6. Originally, these "Form of ..." effects came with elemental illusions (for example, Form of Endurance from the Bertoxxulous drop Veil of the Inferno gave the user the appearance of a fire elemental). The illusions were the original means by which the stacking of these effects was prevented, as you cannot have multiple illusions in force at once.
When the illusions were removed from these items - which was necessary to enable these effects to stack with "normal" illusions - there needed to be a new way to control the stacking, which was done by the addition of an otherwise meaningless effect - "Screech".
I would have quoted Amanensia directly but didn't know how to do it from another post. Very thoroughly explained.

6: screech doesnt do anything except for determining stacking issues

i.e. Form of protection (resist buff) also has 6: screech preventing both form of XXX spells from stacking
