I'd like to +1 on this concern here. Besides leaving all the other
people demotivated.

A small group of trusted reviewers doesn't scale. People will get overloaded.
Or you won't be able to enforce that all patches need to get Reviews.

Reviews should be coming from everywhere and commiters and maintainers
deciding on what to trust or re-review.

Also the list is hard to maintain and keep the lists updated.
