Tomorrow someone uploads a new plugin, or maybe there are 5000 plugins 
already upload and in use but that don't get reviewed because they're 
either new or not in the top 15% yet. By the time a plugin becomes 
pppular enough for review it's too late, countless sites already use it.

So what is the value of of the review process if it can't be reasonably 
used to communicate something to end users? What's the message that will 
be sent? Would it be "we have 6872 plugins available for Wordpress! But 
you shouldn't use any of them except the 245 that we have reviewed" ?
