Yeah, building this would be incredibly easy.  Both netscape and IE are very
extensible.  Also I would point out that there is no reason at all the
metadata would have to be confined to ratings or rankings; you could also
track annotations, "related" works, etc.  The main idea being that anyone be
allowed to store metadata about any page, and anyone be permitted to read
it.  (That is, not just search engines would subscribe to metadata --
individuals should be able to query metadata about a page; perhaps even have
the browser automatically query the metadata servers every time that the
user browsed to a new web page).  Digital signatures would be required to
avoid poisoning, I suppose.  Also it is obvious that metadata that was
additive or commutative, and thus could be aggregated and summarized, would
be quite a bit more scalable than things that would have unique values for
every person adding metadata (like annotations).  So just letting people add
new metadata categories willy-nilly could bring down the servers quickly
(without very careful design).
 
Well, anyway, I think this is basically what TimBL was imagining -- I have a
little description of it here:

And a crude beginning (once digital signatures are reliable?) of an online 
voting method? "Propose/dispose with a coupla clicks!" - The Nielsen 
Ratings people should fund the R&D for this!
