I can add that this happened with the Italian language too. I can
recall at least 3 instances of this happening.

When it happened for the Italian team there were always a lot of pending
reviews so my first theory was that after a specific amount of
descriptions in the translation process the number of reviewers was
lowered to 2. Though I couldn't detect a "magic" number of reviews that
makes this happen. 

Your "time" theory seems a good guess, but I also can add that at least
here it seems to "come and go"; I mean for a period of time, every
description -old or new- seems to need only 2 reviewers, then the things
go back to normal and all the descriptions need 3 reviewers again.
