Nah, it happens only when patches get big and additional development
has taken place recently in the same portions of code already in the
repository, and I get involved in trying my best to not break existing
code if I'm the one going to push it.

You've been lucky, three out of three ;-)

Other features won't need this amount of patch traceability, or you'll
get someone else to review your patch ;-) But if they make substantial
changes to existing code this is what should be done if someone has
the time to do it.

Dan has just expressed the same in a more technical reasoning.
