Yes, but those people can't ultimately approve the patch.  So you'd need to
have a security reviewer do their review, and then someone who isn't a
security person be able to offer the +1/+2 based on the opinion of the
security reviewer.  This doesn't make any sense to me.  You're involving an
extra person needlessly, and creating extra work.

I think that you're confusing security reviews of new code changes with
reviews of fixes to security problems.  In this part of my email, I'm
talking about the former.  These are not embargoed.  They are just the
everyday improvements to the system.  That is the best time to identify and
gate on security issues.  Without someone on core that can give a -2 when
there's a problem, this will basically never happen.  Then we'll be back to
fixing a greater number of things as bugs.
