Response from the Working Group
================================
This is an interesting way to word it so that it is slightly more flexible.

However, it is not clear that your example would necessarily work. If it was
less than two days when I made the transaction then there would be no time.
Part of the current wording states that you must provide a period of time
and you must state what it is.

Your new wording only requires that it be stated. It doesn't actually
require that one exist after I submit. In fact, you even state that if it's
less than two days there wouldn't even be a button or a notification. That
can't be an example of this technique which requires that you provide a time
in the notification.

We are changing the title to:

Providing a stated time within which an online request (or transaction) may
be amended or canceled by the user after making the request.

If you would like to submit a different example that would meet the
technique we would be happy to consider it.
