Ideally CodeReview-2s should be kept for blocking code reviews on
technical grounds, not procedural grounds. For example it always feels
weird to CodeReview-2 all feature patch reviews on Feature Freeze day --
that CodeReview-2 really doesn't have the same meaning as a traditional

For those "procedural blocks" (feature freeze, waiting for runway
room...), it might be interesting to introduce a specific score
(Workflow-2 perhaps) that drivers could set. That would not prevent code
review from happening, that would just clearly express that this is not
ready to land for release cycle / organizational reasons.
