Right, that is the goal. Asking for a message at least sets the
expectation that people are looking at the reasons for the fails. Just
because they don't doesn't mean they aren't, or don't care, but I think
it helps reinforce the desired behavior. If nothing else, it also helps
observers realize "huh, I've seen a bunch of rechecks about $reason
lately, maybe we should look at that".
