There's also no way to be sure that the binaries agree with the source.
One has to assume that the RM is not being deliberately devious.

The point is that the RM has to run the RAT and Clirr reports, and
having them in the RC vote is a way of showing that for the e-mail
The reviewers can also run the reports themselves.

I think the site should be present for future releases.

The site is not strictly part of the vote, but it contains some useful
reports, and it does no harm for the reviewers to scan the site for
any obvious errors.
