Perhaps they are missing *your* point. The RTBC queue is a big problem
as well. Many patches in RTBC represent a massive effort by several
people and it is a complete shame to let them sit there, silently.
Losing a baserunner on 3rd base is much more painful than losing one
at second base. We terribly need a branch maintainer or two for D7.
Lack of throughput at RTBC demotivates the 'needs review' queue, and
even before that - patch creation.

Examples of RTBC silence:
1. make drupal_set_title() use check_plain() by default. -
2. No way to flush form errors during iterative programatic form
submission - http://drupal.org/node/180063
3. Node revisions test fails if admin has a personal timezone offset -
