- Yes it could. I get the impression that the review process is not actively
  driven -- in particular, I'm sure that if past review managers were contacted
  and asked if they would be willing to review something again, we'd have quite
  some slots in the schedule filled in.

- Given that somebody still should decide that include your library in
  the official release, you still depend on active 'somebody'.

- Even now, nothing prevents you from publishing your library for anybody
  to try.

Am I missing something?
