That is kind of easy to say. It is not like commons

It is entirely unclear that the work the bots do - which assumes a
model wherein contributors have no ownership of images until there is
a problem, at which point they are expected to hop to it - is actually
doing the right job. As has been noted, the model does not work well
with how contributors actually contribute.
The argument you're putting here appears to be that we can't improve
the process because the present (broken) process is already very hard.
I submit that this is not a good or useful objection to discussion of
the brokenness of the present process.
