In my opinion, if the IETF could make it worth someone's while in one
way or another to do a thorough review, that would help a lot.
I very much agree with this
I think this is the way to improve quality
there have been some initiatives for this, see

guess it didn't progress...
we should try to figure out some mechanisms to foster reviews... do you
have any ideas?
The first effort was the SIRS project, that was declared a failure after only 4
months (most of which were during the summer) in spite of recruiting a
substantial list of highly experienced participants. The second was a working
group that took a year to develop a scheme that was essentially identical to
sirs, but did a nice job of dissipating community energy for the effort.
The "incentive" that something like SIRS offered was classification as a senior
contributor. This was neither a small point nor a small benefit (IMO).
