it's the context switching that can be a time sink

But in the commit review world you'll be constantly context-switching as your teammates push new commits and you have to drop everything and review them to unblock them from pushing their next commits. Especially for a smaller team and for teams with more juniors or newer teammates (who tend not to review other people's PRs), this will bog down everyone's commits in a big queue waiting to be reviewed.
