    Or at least to give a five or ten second time delay after making the draw offer and before the opponent's clock starts ticking. 

    In official competitions now, OTB, from 1/7/2014 a player will have to offer a draw on his own time, after making his move and before hitting the clock.

    Of course that is impossible to enforce on chess.com as soon as the move is made it then goes to your opponents time.  I usually make my move then ask for a draw whilst my finger is on the clock, before pressing the clock, so the opponent has to think about the draw offer on their own time.
