I think this is _downside_ enough to NOT use the approach suggested by you, 
because loosing the reviewing features (comments directly in the code) doesn’t 
make reviewers’ work easier, does it!

Besides there is even a clearly visible RED "Work-In-Progress" label available 
in the PR interface, which Mojca had spotted eventually.

But, hey, who am I to oppose such a decision if the core team of committers 
doesn’t think it’s a good idea?
Perhaps we should initiate a poll among the top 10 or even 20 committers, who 
are carrying the major load of reviewing/committing for MacPorts’ ports repo???
