Really? It uses the workflow all the other major review systems use, arc is a really weird tool (on some distros even hard to install)

I guess that's your opinion, having the actual textual description and discussion is also very valuable, since you can get an overview on the MR quite fast.

You can have as many reviewers as you want, i guess you mean you can't have more than one assignee.
