[theme-reviewers] Tuesday's meeting

Here's my take on (and original intent for proposing) the role of "trusted
reviewer": they are reviewers who are experienced enough, and who perform
thorough and complete enough reviews, to be *trusted* to push approved
themes Live - either directly (in the case of their own tickets) or
indirectly (in the case of the admin review queue.

No more, no less. Not a "path to admin", not a title or recognition. Just
those competent to push themes live.

It's also not a status symbol or exclusive club. As far as I'm concerned,
it should be something available to every single reviewer.

The whole point is to facilitate the review process while ensuring that
themes with critical issues don't end up in end users' hands.
