While I certainly hope the end is near for LTRU, there is an inevitable 
delay involved - and if the IESG's decision is appealed, there is the 
theoretical chance that implementation of the procedures will be delayed 
further (I'd advise the IESG not to, but that's another matter).

So I think accepting this request once the 2-week timeout has passed is 
"the least harmful" way to go.

Agreed, on both counts.
