In my experience it mostly pays to keep people directly responsible for
their own work.
Every intermediate tester/reviewer/coordinator tends to reduce the
submitter's feeling for responsibility.
So I could imagine a modus operandi where a submitter states:
I feel confident that you can commit without review and will be availabe
for fixes/additional work required.
Maybe we have that in the form of committers that commit their own work

But I do feel that some patches Bruce is talking about need aggreement
and help, not only review.
