I've been keeping up with this thread somewhat haphazardly, so I might have
missed something. But...

I get the sense that you're kinda dropping review drafts on the SMEs desk,
willynilly, w/o a schedule of draft production, perhaps w/o coordinating your
draft production with the SW development cycle?

Sure, you have to tailor your plan, but probably not according to the SME, but
to milestones in the development process. For example: deliver srafts for
component level testing, system testing, release to QA, beta release, etc. (of
course, I'm assuming that the development cycle is this advanced, and not simply
fly-by-night coding). If your SME is going to be silly enough to take a month
off, with his own project milestones looming ahead, you've got more serious
problems than just having a recalcitrant SME.
