There's a lot of benefit to a fresh pair of eyes in this area, I
think. Often the UI review team comes up with a lot of stuff I just
haven't thought of, for stuff I wrote.

Remember, releases are time-based, not feature-based. We won't push

that reviews not done by then won't get done for this release.
