That's exactly what we're asking, because we don't want to add "autoreview" to
all rollbackers.

I really don't understand this. "Autoreview" is about the flag of a new
revision the user creates when he edits the page, isn't it? And according to those revisions
(the page says "edits", I suppose it's a typo) are marked as sighted.
But when you use rollback you restore the most recent revision apart from the
rollbacked one[s]; currently, the "new" revision, identical to the restored
one, is not flagged, but even if you had "autoreview" or "autoreview on
rollback" (as you propose) that revision would be only "sighted", wouldn't it? 
And why should a "sighted" recent version suddenly become unflagged, or even a
"good" recent revision suddenly become only "sighted"? What has changed after
the rollback? 
Why should e.g. rollbacked vandalism require additional verification of the
retored revisions?
