Agreed. Honestly it's better to keep the review teams close to the
expertise for the function at hand.

It needs to be ok that teams besides oslo create reusable components for
other parts of OpenStack. Oslo should be used for things where there
isn't a strong incumbent owner. I think we have a strong incumbent owner
here so living in Artifacts program makes sense to me.
