Don't know about "dangerous", but I would like the opportunity to
provide feedback or to have seen feedback from others when I
contemplating using a package I see on CRAN.  This is particularly
true for package maintainers who seem to have vanished.

Such a "rating" would have a natural place.  I don't see where ratings
for helpers would exist in cyberspace for enquirers to the list.  A
compulsory part of everyone's email signatures?  Don't like that idea.
