We have a switch to disable commenting.
Please can we have the same for ratings?

That way, those of us who pride ourselves on providing documented 
packages with obvious links to mailing lists, issue trackers, and source 
repositories can try and help our package users by stopping them being 
subjected to this annoying distaction.

Package maintainers who don't care (nested list printer anyone?) can 
leave it on and potential package users can judge them as a result.
