I think a long queue is hugely detrimental. It causes loss of momentum 
for contributors, allows work-in-progress to pile up, and causes all 
kinds of related inefficiencies.

And beyond that centralization of the review process is not going to 
scale as far as we need it too either.

What would happen if a central group of people were required to review 
*every* package in debian?

I think it is smart to do something that allows for us to decrease turn 
around time -- and think hard about other ways of improving quality and 
facilitate increased cross-pollination.  Two things which come to mind 
is better documentation and  more attention to "gold standard" 
practices, and more resources behind automated testing.
