That doesn't deal with the case of a collision.  If a developer really
still intends the ITA, but can't respond in one day because they are
(say) out of town or otherwise busy, it would be bad to mark it O.
Sure, they could re-ITA it, but in the interim, someone else may have
started work, and a collision gets created. 

The ITA functions as a lock, and you should avoid stealing locks

Yes, thanks for the reminder.
