One use case is the following:
1) Alice designated Bob as a reviewer
2) Bob would like to delegate to Carl
2.a) Bob needs to add Carl as a reviewer
2.b) Bob would like to remove his name from the reviewer list, to
indicate that no input is expected from him.
(Optionally, we could keep Bob's name, but with a strike-through font
or whatever to indicate that Bob excused himself).
The idea is that Bob could be a team leader, and reassign reviews
within his team.
The above could be achieved by having Bob call Alice, but it's too
much extra work put on Alice.
I don't see much harm in allowing anybody to add new reviewers. And
it'd be nice for a reviewer to be able to excuse herself from a
(I would limit this to people only).
