On the face of it I agree, it's a non obvious system and and reviewing
changesets should be encouraged more. I would consider myself an
advanced mapper now, and I've never reviewed a changeset. I never even
knew how to.

However as an anecdote, the current system seems to work, when I
requested a review of my first 3D building I not only got one, but it
got fixed. [1] [2]
