We actively ask people to do the opposite for code.
So we would have one rule for code and the opposite rule for docs.
Sometimes a patch series will have several doc additions, that while
collectively may appear as one doc patch, the submitter chose to break
them up to keep them with their respective code parts.
I think it should be ok if someone did that ... we have a lot of rules
to what is an acceptable patch already.

See my point above.

Can I suggest that we allow any GM to approve doc changes.
We need all the review bandwidth we can get.
And *even* if they make mistakes sometimes, *that's ok*'.  Even better.
Mistakes are great teachers (if handled appropriately). :-)
