If you think that's the right solution, I'd say go and investigate it
with folks that understand enough gerrit internals to be able to figure
out how hard it would be. Start a conversation in #openstack-infra to
explore it.

My expectation is that there is more complexity there than you give it
credit for. That being said one of the biggest limitations we've had on
gerrit changes is we've effectively only got one community member, Kai,
who does any of that. If other people, or teams, were willing to dig in
and own things like this, that might be really helpful.
