I'm not sure if this will actually delay stuff getting merged.

It certainly has the potential to do so. If people submit a draft in
Launchpad and it takes us a week to review it, that's adding a lot of

OTOH, if we're on top of things, I think it could actually increase
overall throughput. We'd spent less time reviewing specs that are just
entirely out of scope, and we'd be able to help steer spec-writers
onto the right path sooner. They, in turn, would waste less time
writing specs that are then rejected wholesale, or deemed to need
significant reworking.

I'm not really disagreeing with you--we need to be vigilant and make
sure we don't introduce a bottleneck with this. But I also think that,
as long as we do that, we might actually speed things up overall.
