Section 3.5 says:

The Language Subtag Reviewer MAY also extend the review period in two week increments to permit further discussion. The Language Subtag Reviewer MUST indicate on the list whether the registration has been accepted, rejected, or extended following each two week period.

Decisions can only come at the END of a two-week period. Period. Short-circuiting a review period could lead to various unpalatable consequences.

Since we all actively expect 'Zinh' to have no value in a language tag, waiting the two weeks is hardly inconveniencing anyone.
