One possible alternative would be to update the bugs.webkit.org Component page with a list of reviewers by component:


It puts the information closer to where it's needed.  The only down sides are that it's not necessarily easy to find (click on the link of the "Component:" label on any bug page) and it requires special access to bugs.webkit.org to edit the component descriptions.
