Comment (by bcworkz):

 I like this concept in general. My only concern would be for "rage
 reviewers" who might repeatedly make occasional minor edits in order to
 keep their 1 star review near the top. (or same for the opposite overly
 enthusiastic 5 star reviewer) To expound on ipstenu's suggestion of
 including "On date, OP changed rating from X to Y", do so visibly for
 every edit submission. Similar to how forum edits are logged at the bottom
 of each topic or reply.

 The thought of generating a long edit log record should dissuade most
 people from attempting this tactic. For the few that try it anyway, the
 long log is easily seen by moderators.
