Hi Ernesto,

I think it's not a good idea to let extension authors have any control 
over ratings, as it is much too tempting for the *bad* authors to simply 
reset all votes (remember they don't get many positive ones, so there is 
no loss for them). Moreover, it would be unfair to the people who maybe 
put some effort into their ratings to be simply deleted by the ext author.
