It's not possible to report without typing, and ratings without the typed information as to why the user gave the app that rating would be at best useless (Why is this silver? What doesn't work?), and at worst misleading. "False platinums" in particular are already a big problem: users give an app a platinum rating, but list tweaks they applied (so it really should be gold) or things that didn't work (so it really should be silver). Admins and maintainers need that typed information to assess whether a rating is correct.
