I disagree on the high bar here. The author should acknowledge the
comments; however, addressing all of the comments in one shot has similar
problems as having commits that are too large (diffs between revisions
become more difficult to review). This also leads to significant timing
issues, where the comments made overnight in some time zone are addressed
by the author locally, but someone added comments in the afternoon the next
day before the author has a chance to post the new revision.
