Just to be clear: YANG doctors won't catch everything and hence YANG
doctor reviews complement other reviews, they do not replace the need
for other people's reviews. In particular, YANG doctors usually do not
understand what is being modeled. Getting the semantics of lets say
identities right remains the job of the working group. And the working
group is ultimately responsible for what it produces.
