Yes, by default tier1 is executed.

Yes to all, the last command "wins". Only restriction is that you can't 
mix pull request commands and regular text in a comment and that the 
pull request commands must be last in the PR body.

All commands work for draft PRs.

The [Vx] suffix is added to the RFR e-mails whenever a pull request has 
been updated. Think of it as sending out a new webrev "revision", e.g. 
"please see webrev.02".
