That's what I wrote.  "Reviewer" is the "hat on" business after
the review of a formal request.  So far we've seen a request for
2004-ortograf, that's no subtag.

That's why you posted the request as list member (hat off) and not
as some reviewer rule (hat on).

No, I'm fine with personal opinions of ADs, Chairs, reviewers, etc.
as long as it's always clear when they switch to "hat on" business.

Because you said it as list member, yes.  Later you wrote that you
said it as reviewer, but that wasn't the case, the reviewer can't
make up such rules.

That's good.  For unclear reasons we often get into arguments
about issues where we actually agree.
