its a good direction, but someone should come up with an adjustment because:

c) pleased customers usually don't care about feedback
b) too many "happy" reviews that list more negative than positive points
x) positive reviews of sorts "please give them 1-n patches to fix a quadrillion bugs before you vote negative"
etc.
