These are good questions.  I think in my opinion the problems with the
review process boil down to:

. review requirements spread out over multiple wiki pages
. review requirements that are changing
. workflow involves too many different websites and bugs

I'd love to see a tool that allowed people to upload an SRPM directly
and then put it somewhere accessible to others (including the reviewer).
We could automate a lot of the rpmlint and build checking as well.  Then
the requirements that we can't automate can be pulled live and presented
to the reviewer in a side-by-side web app with checkboxes and comment
fields.  Something like the Mondrian code review tool developed at
Google [1].

Sorry I didn't get back sooner as I realize this won't make this year's
SoC.  I'd still like to think about it as it'd be a great project for a
Fedora contributor.
