Yes, absolutely. We should not reduce normal codereview use. For any of these "casual contributions", someone needs to do the work to get the patch in via codereview (and in most cases also do some changes to the patch as well). Intention is not do regular contributions in this way, just to allow similar approach for all users as has been the case for commercial license holders since ages.
