I don't have time to comment further, and others seem to be expressing
much the same thoughts that I have about this proposal, but there is
one thing I have to mention:

Oh great, so this is another review where what we're supposed to be
reviewing is a moving target? That's frustrating. I've not followed
much of the discussion, really due to lack of time but I'll also claim
that it allows me to form my own opinions without undue influence from
what other people think - and now having read the documentation linked
from the review announcement I hear that I should have been looking
at another branch.

Apart from the extra work that this causes for reviewers, it also
is in danger of leading to "design by review". Rapidly re-designing
something based on a jumble of feedback from multiple people in a
short time is not a good way to produce the best solution to a problem,

Review managers (etc.), in future can we please just review what is

Regards, Phil.
