i concur with Nathan's proposed change, i think it is warranted.

the review step is important, anyone running bots should have
a quality control plan which includes a timely review and a plan
to rollback the changeset promptly if things go awry. lack of
QC planning has led to some significant damage to the map in
parts of the US (particularly with some of the ill advised
dup removal bots.)

i don't know enough about bot operation to actually answer Nathan's
question, though.
