Yes, Matt should be doing more reviews. The difference is that (as I
understand it) we want to include Matt as a documentation core more than
as a core reviewer for playbooks. Matt's reviews have all pertained to
documentation. Other projects (e.g., Neutron and maybe Glance) are trying
out a trust system where cores are accepted for subsystem expertise. Those
cores are expected to only +2 and/or approve changes for their subsystem.
I don't think anyone can question Matt's expertise in documentation, or
Matt's knowledge of the architecture of the project.

Tl;dr What if we trust Matt to only approve documentation related changes?
