Fair enough. I think this makes it a human problem which we're not
going to solve by applying more technology. Drop all of H8XX, make
Gerrit preserve votes on commit-message-only patchset updates,
decree no more commit message -1s from reviewers, and make it
socially acceptable to just edit commit messages of changes you
review to bring them up to acceptable standards.
