I think you're right; that's really the only way to make ratings consistent. The problem is that that would require a complete overhaul of the AppDB, and a complete overhaul would depend on someone with the required skills deciding to do it. My general impression is that the AppDB is at the bottom of the priority list for most developers (if it's even on their list at all).
