There isn't any point, Otterbox hates Nexus phone devices. They never ever make any Nexus phone cases, their last one was the Galaxy Nexus.
Why beg a company to make a case for your phone if they don't want to make a phone case for a flagship Google device? Its obvious that they don't take the Nexus brand very seriously. If they don't want to make a case, take your business elsewhere to another company.
If a Otterbox case is that important to you then maybe you should re consider on what phone to get based on what cases Otterbox produces for.
There are actually a good number of cases that can serve as alternatives and they actually make a case for a phone without begging them to do so. At this rate, if you want a Otterbox that much you might as well send Otterbox a resume for their marketing department because thats exactly what they're making you do by offering them to get 10K petitions. The phone has been out over 3 months and they don't have ANY plans to make a case for this phone. It doesn't take many resources to set up a prototype for the Nexus 5. Its more or less molding it to fit the size. I'm not being rough with you but thats just the truth.
I can definitely say that if you're looking for an Otterbox quality case, go with the Trident. An Otterbox is not going to protect more than that and you're probably going to pay more if they end up making one. The Slim Armor is also very good if you don't want to go with too thick of a case. I have both but stick with the Slim Armor as it will protect it from most drops and bumps. And since I'm not engaging in urban warfare or playing baseball with my phone as the ball I don't feel I need to have such a bulky case to protect my phone. So to the OP, believe me, you're better off not petitioning Otterbox and just going with a case that is readily available. For $34.95 through Trident AND you get multiple colors to choose from, you can't beat that. Otterbox will be at least $40-$45 and all you get is black.
Edit: And Otterbox saying they'll consider it doesn't give you a guarantee that they will, even if you get 30,000 signatures. It's all in what it will cost them in development, tooling up to manufacture it, and if there is enough of a demand that it makes it worth it.
You could look at the Ballistic Tough Jacket Maxx... Good reviews and a belt clip included.
