As a preface:

I doubt the need for associating a subset of the files
patterns for a subsystem with a particular reviewer.

If a reviewer is interested enough in a subsystem to
volunteer to read patches then that reviewer likely won't
be overburdened by getting a few more emailed patches
that may be outside a scope of interest.

To answer the question:

If it's done, there needs to be some mechanism to
associate a particular reviewer and the files.

Ordering of "letter:" types in MAINTAINERS is currently

Given a desire to have more than one reviewer interested
in different files, any subset use will either impose some
ordering requirement on the file list or some association
with the reviewer and the reviewer's file patterns of interest.
