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.
