Are you going to a set if the pitcher just stands there?
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.

If hands are not yet together, I'm with you; kill it. If she steps off or separates without a pitch, she abandoned the pitch.

If the pitcher has brought her hands together and is still on the pitchers plate, I'm waiting, as she has neither started a pitch nor abandoned the pitch sequence. After 10 seconds (5 in NCAA), she has created a 2nd illegal pitch, but that hardly matters.
