I think it's fine for a reviewer to ask for a particular patch to be put in review board. I think it would also be fine to put in our HowToContribute doc that for larger patches putting it in review board may help get it reviewed more quickly. I'm not in favor of requiring it, as some reviewers don't use review board.
