I don't think that this is handled clearly in the policy. I personally 
would allow the original ITP submitter 1-2 weeks to react. If you don't 
get any reply just change the owner to yourself and upload it. You could 
already start to look for a sponsor (RFS to this mailing list).

Usually I'm pretty careful with package cleptomania. But there are so many 
ITPs that are long dead and block other people's attempt to introduce the 
package to Debian.
