This needs balancing. People crucial to the evaluation of a new
feature and its implementation simply may not have the time to
reply prior to v9. We've had situations where people posted new
revisions every other day, sometimes even more than one per day.

As indicated in several other contexts before - imo people not
helping to shoulder the review load should also not have the
expectation that their (large) contributions will be looked at
in due course.
