I should've called that up for discussion more prominently, I guess.
Yes, I just picked that number out of the air, it's absolutely up for
debate. Do you think it should be a bigger number or a smaller number?
:) I wondered about whether to build in some fudge space here - say the
number's a guideline and we can go beyond it if we think it's a good
idea - but worried that might be a bit too messy.

I thought about it and 7 days probably sounds OK, considering it also includes the weekend. I think I wouldn't increase it, but consider decreasing it if people think it's the right way to go.
