Serious document reviews take time (a) for the review itself plus (b)
for the followup discussions (and in my experience b >> a). The only
reward for such a time investment is (perhaps) being mentioned in the
acknowledgements section.

To achieve more and better reviews, we simply have to make it more
attractive for people to spend their time on serious reviews.

[I am repeating this statement here, which I have made in the past,
 because I feel that the importance of this is still overlooked.]
