It encourages drive-by bikeshedding. "I'm an IPMC Member from a few years
back. I see $foo, and OMG need to comment on it."

Did anybody stop and read the concerns recently raised to the Board? Much
of the focus on that email was about such drive-by commenting.

Thus, reduce the opportunity for drive-by.

Please stop making excuses to keep the status quo. That is pretty much
everything that I've seen since that email.
