I also thank you and the registration staff, Richard, for considering the
suggestions put forth in the discussion list. Also I did not actively
participate in the discussion, many of my thoughts were expressed by others.
It is wise for the registration staff to not specify exactly how much time a
downstream must wait for a response from their upstream before they petition
to ARIN. ARIN can not, and should not, dictate what the turn-around time of
any upstream is for their own customer. However, a message from ARIN
carries with it a sense of urgency that deserves a reply within the
specified 10 business days.
I trust that the registration staff does not consider anything more than 2
weeks to be a reasonable amount of time that a downstream customer should
wait for an initial response from their upstream provider. :)

We would like the petitioning organization to wait for at least
a few business days before contacting ARIN. If the petitioner
does not receive a response from their upstream provider and
contacts ARIN, it is likely a week will have passed before ARIN
contacts the upstream provider.
