IMHO, this is a very important point missed from the discussion so far.

What if a new back-end ticks all the right boxes but simply not being
reviewed by established members of the community? I expect this to be quite
common, especially with LLVM broaden in popularity and reaching beyond its
traditional developer / user base. We all have busy lives and it's
understandable that existing core developers / maintainers have no time nor
inclination to thoroughly review every new back-end. When enough is enough
and it's OK to press "commit" button?
