I think it's worth looking into allowing other people to add/remove
reviewers. I think this is one of those things that some people are going to
want, others are going to want to disallow, and others are going to want
flexible rules (only team leads or whatever can modify these). That falls
into the policy realm, which is something we'll probably dedicate a large
part of a release to in time.
For now, that one permission will let special users modify other people's
review requests, which works, but again you'll see the update coming from
the original person. We probably want to fix this to have it say something
like "Bob (on behalf of Alice)".
