It occurs to me that this would also work for the actual reviews of the
library. Those could be posted as comments on the issue as well. (Or in a
"Review: libname" issue distinct from the "Submission: libname" one, to
avoid clutter.)

This would be much easier on the review manager who currently needs to scan
the high-volume Boost list in order to collect the reviews. With the issue
system, all reviews would already have been collected in one convenient
