I think so, it has prompted me to give a quick review on a couple of
PRs.  It is occasionally annoying, but it's not hard to ignore.  I can
see how it would be *very* annoying for anyone who has touched large
swaths of the codebase, though.  If there's a way to make it opt-in,
perhaps we could give that a spin?

There’s no way to make it opt-in except by having people explicitly list what files they want to be notified on (either on an always basis, or on a “if you couldn’t find enough people through your heuristics” basis).
