It is a nice feature, Eduardo,
It has to be done manually for each request and that means using the 
dashboard. The dashboard resets when reloaded to the default ordering 
for the requests. That means that the list of requests has to be 
reordered every time unless the user is using a spreadsheet and can 
search for the request.

Would it be possible to put the request option on the dashboard beside 
the request so that it would be easier to see the requests available for 
extension and request the extension from the dashboard rather than the 
request page? An "Expires in next 30 days" button might also help sort 
the list
