  * Because a developer already gets "karma for apps" by having it
    listed at maemo.org/downloads/ and people voting and commenting on it.

  * Because we don't say "user karma", we say "karma".

  * Because there's enough confusion around karma already.

If there's a strong push back on my suggestion to change it, fine.

needs to change there?
