In an perfect world a maintainer would review each patch as it is submitted and remove the tag if the patch is not good.

In common sense a patch is a proposed solution for a bug, independent from the author (bug submitter, maintainer, upstream or somebody else).

Each sort of proposed solution needs an approval (e.g. regression test), if it removes the bug. If not, the bug cannot be closed as 'solved'. Thus I do not understand, why to remove the 'patch' tag.
