At that point it's releasing so much c02 that you arnt really at risk of oxidation. That's why we sulphite wine after it degasses.
Now I don't do a heck of a lot of kits...but when I do I throw the instructions in the garbage and extend them from weeks to months. I don't see why kit wines should get treated differently from any other wine.
The schedule that is provided with kits its only to satisfy the human want for instant gratification.
