I don't think that we should drop the legal review (that would probably
be dangerous). However, NEW reviews seem to cover a lot of other
aspects currently, which might explain why it takes so much time.

If people feel that a reviewing service is needed, we could split
that out of NEW processing and have a separate service (or just use
debian-mentors@ and http://mentors.debian.net).
