What's wrong with the expectation being that they plan very well? ;-)

Remember, "community over code." The point of waiting 72 hours is to
give the community the opportunity to review, comment, etc. 

The point that some merges are less disruptive / intrusive than others
is well-taken, though. Perhaps that is something that could be discussed
during the feature proposal and decided then. If the community decides
up-front that a merge is unlikely to be a problem, then maybe the
expectation would be that only 48 or 24 hours needs to pass to allow for
review & comments. But it should be explicit, and I'd rather err on the
side of allowing the community time to review.
