It is possible that in-the-admin plugin compatibility voting will come  
in a future version but it's not something for the current version of  

We need to see how the voting goes and wait for us to get some data to  
look at.

I think this is a really bad idea personally.

This is like only asking your unsatisfied customers for a review.

You will likely only get negative low scoring feedback - yes some of  
it will be constructive and helpful.

The opportunity cost of installing a free app is so low that you are  
much more likely to do it even if it in no way fits your needs and  
therefore also much more likely to delete it as it cost you nothing.
