How is that different than the already in place plugin rating system hosted on WP.org? There users (not just developers) can rate your plugin and advise other is it works with a particular version of WP. Also it links to user support mentions from the WP.org forum. 

Do we really need to start splintering the plugin reviews into another micro-communitee controlled site?

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.
