One caveat: personal preferences (as you yourself noted) can get tricky when 
the size of the community is large (and Maemo is no stranger to growing 
pains). Just avoid that soft metrics (like personal preferences) turn the 
community (or parts of it) into clubs with little contact to the outside world 
- I'm pretty sure we picked up a few young titans in the last few months, but 
these guys are nowhere on our 'experienced' preference maps even though they 
are essential to the future of the community. There is already a schism (IRC, 
the lists, TMO and FNO already feel like four different planets to me), there 
is IMHO no need to split this further on a buddy basis.
