Interesting situation because "delaying the restart" is a cautionable offense and the safest answer for you is if this is how the referee interprets what he sees from the PK shooter.

One would like to think that the keeper knows he/she is waiting to hear the whistle and may not react to a premature shot on goal.

The law missing from the LOTG that referees should acknowledge is common sense. Be clear with your instructions and if a premature shot is taken (even if perceived as deliberate), use your voice rather than an instant card to tell the shooter that won't be tolerated again by anyone.
