Can I search for open PRs that have zero reviews requested?

I’d like to search for PRs that don’t have any reviews, and no review requests – in other words potentially “orphaned” PRs that might otherwise get missed if people are waiting for review requests/assignments in a busy project.

https://help.github.com/en/articles/searching-issues-and-pull-requests#search-by-missing-metadata has lots of examples on how to do this for when there is no label, assignee, etc. but this syntax doesn’t work for reviewers (tried no:review).  There is review:none but that matches anything that doesn’t have a finished review (approved/changes requested) – including PRs where there are some review requests.

Is it possible to do this with the current syntax?  If not, can this be added?
