They still get the same information from the review bug itself; so only 
one mail in the future instead of three (like in the past). That is a 
improvement without any downsides imho.

Then it's not clear who actually does the review -- just look at bug 67 
and tell me who the reviewer is. Assigning the bug to the reviewer will 
make it obvious (even if there are hundred comments in the bug) and is 
something a lot of people already do.

And there is nothing lost, as the mailing list is still in the loop. And 
sure, now and them somebody will accidentally remove the list (just like 
that has happened in the past); that's no big problem, as everybody sees 
that on the list and thus can add the lists again within seconds.
