Basically agreeing with Andrew Gray, the problem with saying this is a
job for oversight is that there is way too much work for the very few
people with oversight permission.

If the foundation receives an actually DMCA takedown notice (or any
notification from the actual copyright holder that eir copyright is
being infringed), then maybe it's a job for oversight, as this is a
much more rare occurrence.

Oversight was a temporary hack put in place for the really egregious
cases, until revision deletion was completed.
