Well, if you look at the submissions in the appb , we get reports like "What
works: everything i tested" ;"What doesn't: nothing" How on earth can we find
out if this app is silver, gold, platinum or polonium.....

IMHO it's far more important to have a good written HOWTO, than a rating. I'd
say a rating like satisfying/not satisfying would be enough, and an application
shouldn't have rating without a HOWTO.
