In principle I agree with Matt, his arguments are reasonable.
Maybe a compromise would be to allow the practice of asking
for an informal reconfirmation when cherry-pick tags were forgotten,
but only if one receives reconfirmation from _all_ original reviewers?
(Otherwise, the missing approvers need to be from the Reviewed-by list
and additional approvals would be needed).
