You're assuming that:
- The review discussion is still available [1]
- One can find it based on given individual commit

[1] system hosting it could be down, or network could be down.

It's maybe a bit contrived situation, but I kind of prefer 
self-contained information. What, why and who is better to be in commit 
itself than only in MR.
