You haven't read the latest version of developers-reference. It's no
more so precise in the delays, it says :
- file bug
- wait a few days
- send patch
- wait a few days
- upload nmu to DELAYED/7-day and inform the maintainer (and send the
  patch for the complete NMU)

Of course if you file bug with patches, or if some bugs already have
patches, there's just one "wait a few days" and it's up to you to decide
if "few" is 2, 3, 4, 5 or more. :-)

I think the NMU rules are quite good now. But people keep complaining
about NMU rules instead of doing NMU ... ;-)
