Agreed, especially for some of the largish WIP (like the partitioning
work for example) patches, a little effort being spent by our
reviewers on agreeing (or disagreeing right now!) on the
direction-implementation being pursued will go a long way in pulling
those efforts off from the WIP mode.

ISTM that identifying and quantifying a certain effort as small,
medium, large and having an appropriate review mechanism in place
might help too.

Regards,
Nikhils
