I agree, the choice of channel depends on who you want to privilege.

I tend to prefer a separate channel, as it makes it easier for the
on-call reviewer and the people that want their stuff reviewed. It's
difficult to follow the discussion without bringing up the code being
reviewed, so there is less benefit than usual for idling bystanders.

Questions on work-in-progress should still get asked and answered in
#ubuntu-motu, so that everyone benefit from the answers. But when it
comes to reviewing a specific, ready-for-review change or package, I
think it makes sense to have the discussion between the author and the
reviewer in a separate channel.
