I'd agree with Andrey here. Per

a library can either be rejected or accepted, and it the latter case a list
conditions for final acceptance can be specified. Sometimes, we do have
a mini-review to check those conditions. However, it seems that
"accepted subject to another full review" is a tad inconsistent.

Do you think you could make your final review result explicitly
list those and only those issues that must be addressed before
the library is included, such that those issues can be reasonably
rechecked without 10-day full review?
