I see it just like you :-). The early reviewers are contributors and 
participants. The reason I made the distinction is because reviews are 
only one form of participation in the working group. There are other 
ways to participate in the working group

* Editing documents
* Keeping track of issues
* Contributing text to sections
etc.

Thanks
