sfam, you should be able to do that in the SB plugins with XML like this 
in the <display media="html"> section:

<a href="http://wikipedia.org/wiki/CyberPunk_Visuals">
Degree of CyberPunk Visuals:
  <field content="/path/to/rating/element" type="rating"/>

You can create as many ratings as you like.  Some of the SB templates (I 
think review-cafe.xml and review-hotel.xml, at least) have multiple 
ratings, although none of them are tagged properly yet like in the example.

Here's what the code in review-cafe looks like at the moment:

    <if content="foodrating"><div><b>Food rating</b>: <field 
content="foodrating" type="rating"/></div></if>

I guess this should become:

    <if content="foodrating"><div><a 
href="http://structuredblogging.org/ratings/food" rel="tag"><b>Food 
rating</b>: <field content="foodrating" type="rating"/></a></div></if>
