I don't know about that; I could certainly imagine, say, a proposal
asking people to vote by making blog posts and linking, and then the
proposal has a list showing who voted.  It shouldn't be
*authoritative*, because only the person casting the vote can say for
sure that they voted a certain way.

Hmm, isn't that backwards?  somevotingfunction() is a vote-for the
current page.  See the FAQ entry that you yourself linked.  I very
much doubt that such a link makes sense, though.
