Well, it has been said in another comment of this thread that the status will/can change automatically once a comment is added (hopefully the automated ones don't count). So that should not be a problem. On the other hand, even if the status would remain to be NEEDSINFO, I expect that the procedure starts all over again and another warning is issued after 15 days.

+1 for the proposals. They sound good to me.
