How about an OpsImpact tag ?
I think such a tag would help. That would encourage ops to start looking
more regularly into proposed changes by highlighting the few reviews
that are most likely to need their expertise.

We could have that tag post reviews to the -operators ML (in the same
way SecurityImpact posts to the -security ML), which would additionally
reinforce the need for this list as a separate list from the openstack
general list.

While this would be an improvement over the current situation, IMO we are focused a bit too much here on "operators" vs others. I think we need clearer guidelines on what an "incompatible change" is, and how to balance "change it to something better" with "don't cause users upgrade pain". There was a similar issue with API changes a while back and providing the api stability guidelines really helped people understand the issue better. Of course, similar to what Sean talked about, having API tests in tempest that blocked incompatible api changes was probably even more important.
