I think that would be a great idea, because it would eliminate some of the possibilities of false ratings, but it should also include patches, cd fixes and native dll's, this way if they do use any of these the rating itself can no longer be any higher then gold.

I think for the existing submissions we should fix them up, so it's clear enough that the actual program and the installer have different different data that effects the overall rating, because the installer gets platinum doesn't mean the whole program does. 

Like if the installer gets platinum and the application itself only gets gold the rating should be gold because installing the application does you little good if you cant use it.
