Daniel, thanks for flagging this - we shouldn't let our standards lapse.

Some MPs are trivial enough for it to be obvious there are no problems -
for these I don't care about the number of reviews or think we need to
wait "a few days". At the other extreme some MPs are complex enough that
a reviewer can only see that that there are no obvious problems - for
these it may take days and discussion to reach consensus.

I think it comes to trusting people to know the difference.
