PS: and if we agree this convention can we document it in our Working Conventions pages?

| | Here is my proposed answer: The Phab reviews are a good place for code-
| | specific commentary/feedback but Trac is better for design issues. A
| rule
| | of thumb might be to pretend that Phab comments are all forgotten in a
| | month or two, whereas Trac comments are expected to be around in 5
| years.
| Good criterion.  I'm littering the Notes in GHC with references to Trac
| tickets, on the grounds that those tickets will be permanently available.
| Let's not commit to making the Phab stuff permanently available too.  (Of
| course it may be.)
