I've not seen that proposed anywhere, I'm not sure QA has the
resources to actually do that.
It was part of Spot's proposal at FUDCon Lawrence and we talked about
it more at Flock Charleston - where if I remember right, several people
from QA also said they didn't have resources to do that).
At the moment the time is a week, basically I don't see any real
proposal to extend that overall, just to batch updates out on a Monday
(not sure that is the best day if no one tests over a weekend). Most
of the updates that go out quicker than a week are due to receiving
the explicitly requested amount of karma.
I'm not set on Monday; that's a fairly arbitrary suggestion. Shouldn't
be a weekend or Friday, though!
