I think one of the best ideas I've seen proposed so far regarding plugin reviews is the idea of setting up an Amazon like review system for plugins. Each plugin on the repository gets their own review section aka comments. These comments could then be rated by the community with the most voted comments displayed at the top. This system is not subject to liability and instead of a team of people working behind the scenes through an email list or what have you, the entire community becomes the team of reviewers. The reviews/comments form also provides an opportunity for the end user to state whether or not the plugin works or is broken which would solve the other problem of plugin devs not getting feedback when someone marks their plugin as broken.
