Users can have multiple roles. What happens if you assign the
'owner' and 'rev' users the 'Member' role in addition? Does that help?

It shouldn't be necessary though, but if you start manipulating permissions
for 'Member' let's say and you do not repeat those changes for
the 'Reviewer' role also, then you can easily end up having 'Reviewers'
less privileged than 'Members' (e.g., if you tick off 'Acquire ...' for 
permission and only grant it to 'Members' only even 'Managers' will
loose this permission).

for me it does.
