I say go for it.  I also say it may be hard to maintain a rating 
system.  You'll need a plan on what to do when people bump up or down 
your thoughts.  I suppose you'll need to ask that people discuss 
altering ratings only after a discussion on the talk page.  I would bet 
you'll need a pretty good description of the rating system (either on 
the page or on the talk page).  But it sounds like it's in good hands.

Enjoy your glorious adventure.
