It's a great idea lacking any credibility or reference.

Except for the chicken and egg problem, I'd only really want/trust 
endorsements from people with serious ties (worked for/with) that person
for skills in which they themselves had skill/endorsements.

or maybe something like:

"Any Nobody" says Dan Lyke knows Perl:  +.1

Mike (me) says Dan Lyke knows Perl:  +1

Larry Wall (creator of Perl) says Dan Lyke knows Perl: +10
