Realistically core teams are already doing that. Being considered an
exception people typically provide a good reason in the review as to why
it's a fast approve, which is fine.

The large cross cutting whitespace fixes are actually completely
problematic in their own way, because they typically force a non trivial
rebase on 10s - 100s of patches in flight, so they generate *a ton* of
work for other people.
