When I am not interested in a topic, or there are other reviewers
who are more qualified and are interested in the topic than I am,
the protocol to require the final "Here is a verbatim final resend,
the only difference from what was reviewed is the reviewed-by's from
the reviewers." will let me completely ignore the topic while it is
being discussed (as long as I trust the judgment of these reviewers).

Otherwise I'd need to keep track of the progress of the discussion
on each and every topic, which is often impossible.
