I really don't see why this is so bad.  We're using a tool specifically
designed for reviewing things that is already working *really* well, not
just for code, but also for TC governance documents.

Unless Storyboard plans to re-implement what gerrit does (I sure hope it
doesn't), I expect we would keep working like this.  Do you expect
storyboard to have an interface for iterating on text documents, where
you can provide inline comments, review differences between revisions,
etc?  What am I missing?
