I don't quite agree. If a maintainer doesn't even examine new tickets, then that's a problem, so the tickets just issued or being updated by requesters are also important. As to whether there should be a different delay allowed based upon severity, feature request, etc., I certainly didn't want to get into that level of detail. Instead, I was looking to keep the phrasing sufficiently vague to leave wiggle room based upon community perception and maintainer response when the community complains.
