Risk Mitigating Factor:
New contributors have no CVS commit access to /cvs/pkgreview at all until a reviewer gives them access. The reviewer should know better than to allow something with legal problems into the CVS repo or to grant someone access to upload such code. So in practice, this
removal plan is likely to be needed rarely if ever.

If it's only for existing contributors, why can't they just use their
fedorapeople space with git or hg or whatever?

It isn't just for existing contributors. It has potential benefits to aid the workflow of existing contributors (central location and same tools as post-review). The other key benefit would be for new contributors who use the tools for the first time. It would be great to provide them a very similar work area to how they will be maintaining their package after the review.
