actually, it's a very useful step. people are trying to override the bot
all the time because they don't get the intentions behind a particular
report (or because they enjoy outsmarting the system just for the sake
of it, like you apparently do). having an approver (i.e., somebody who
is expected to be familiar with the coding style, commit policy, etc.)
take the decision to override the bot is very much part of the plan.

-2 on your proposal.
