I'd agree that the poll period was way too short.
I don't think a poll should be necessary at all, in future. I think it should
be a collective decision of the relevant maintainers. We don't micro-poll for
every other packaging decision, and that's effectively what this is. If a
maintainer makes a genuinely contentious decision, we have routines in place
to deal with that.
