How about allowing plugin devs to include their rating in the plugin name? Dynamically. Only problem there is it looks a bit shit and the details before downloading would still come from the readme on .org (right?)

You would just have a WP plugin like 'Review Plugin' that if you installed it you could rate whatever plugins you had installed (with amazing authentication =). No SVN or GIT or whatever needed. The reviews would get aggregated by the server and possibly supply links to the WordPress repo.
