In my opinion that seems like unnecessary extra work. All patches in
theory are to be "under review". Reviewing takes enough time,
initiative, and motivation as is, and adding another, potentially
superfluous step just over complicates it.

Perhaps "Under Review" can just be removed, disabled, hidden, or
documented as "this option is ignored". Same with "Deferred" and
"Awaiting Upstream".
