To increase in rating, software would need to be submitted for
re-rating, and approved before it gets a new rating. The rating process
could be limited to one rating increase per major gnome release (ie once
every 6 months). It need not be a single step increase either. It may be
conceivable (depending on the level the barrier is set at) that software
could jump from 1 foot to 4 feet in a cycle. 

Limiting this to once every 6 months would 
a) Weed out software that hasn't been maintained
b) Prevent someone from constantly resubmitting their application
   (Have I reached the next stage yet mummy?)

More addendums to follow once I think of other things I've forgotten.
