The point here is that Kevin isn't perfect. As such, he can make
mistakes, just like all of us. By asking for a couple karma nods from
different people, we increase the chance of catching some of those
mistakes. Since the delay exists anyway, it doesn't seem to be that big
of a deal to me to make sure a couple people test it and comment as such
during that delay.
