I find the quality of directorate reviews to be highly variable.
Sometimes they are quite deep and perceptive. Sometimes I have thought
a draft needs a review by the X Directorate because of X issues in it
and the resulting review has only a few comments on things found by
the nits checker -- and I mean not just that it has no substantive
comments on X issues, the review doesn't doesn't mention X at all,
except possibly is boilerplate at the beginning of the review, not
even to say that the reviewer didn't find any X issues in the draft
:-(

Thanks,
Donald
