Certainly, but we focus a lot more on growing our development community 
through teaching new developers AFAICT.  Doing reviews in a "public" place 
is benificial for this.

I can certainly see that either way has advantages and disadvantages.  For 
Ubuntu, I think optimizing for exposing more people to the information to 
be learned in a review is the better answer.
