Well, REVU was a tool which we needed for a special purpose:

To get rid of the wiki page we had. That we've accomplished.

REVU2 will be a much better approach.

What you are suggesting is already there. It's called "hct" and it's keybuks 
child. So, seeing this in an environment of Ubuntu: I think (or I hope) hct 
will be included in launchpad, and then we will include some parts of REVU3 
(I hope :)) into launchpad as well. 
You can read everything on http://wiki.launchpad.canonical.com, especially the 
part about Soyuz.
For the REVU2 part, you can read the spec on 
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/revu .

So, IMHO for the MOTU area, there is no need to reinvent a wheel.
