Would you prefer if the people writing kernel drivers for you, or writing the compiler you use, or breaking your desktop environment for you, stopped doing that because they spent their time reviewing all the code in the updates to their own systems? (OK, maybe the desktop guys ;-)
As someone who produces FOSS as well as consuming it I spend far too much of my own time working on a single project, I have no desire to review all the other projects I rely on. I'd rather just take the updates and live with the occasional fits of rage when something seemingly stupid gets done to my system!
