FWIW I read Nikola's 'by nature of things' statement to be more of a
representation of the higher-bandwith communication and relationships with
co-workers rather than "for the company".  I hope my reading is not wrong.

I know a while back some of the things I was trying to land in multiple
projects really benefited from having both the relationships and
high-bandwidth communication to 4 PTLs, three of whom were in the same room
at the time.

There is the perception problem, exactly what Mark also wrote about, when
that happens off-line, and I think it is our responsibility (those
advocating the reviews, and those responding to them) to note the outcome
of those discussions on the record somewhere, IMO preferably in Gerrit.
