I don't really agree that it is easy to figure out which monks are the most accurate, especially for newcomers. You have to think of this from the point of view of someone who is trying to learn the language. If you're really looking for answers to a question you don't know the answer to, it is difficult to weed through the different solutions and find the right one. I understand that voting for a specific person might present a problem, but I think that accuracy votes would help more than they would hurt.

    And this mythical new user will be able to figure out what those votes mean, and what good ranges are, and how they were derived?

    Look around you. Reading only two or three days worth of replies to Seekers of Perl Wisdom will reveal several people who are well above average in their answers. That is already available and apparent for anyone with the foresight to look; I doubt that it would be better to add to the complexity of the information presented about each monk. Where would you disply these ranks? On the home nodes? New users, on average, won't even read the site docs before asking a question, but you want them to find each user's home node and compare their scores on a series of scales that they don't know and won't be familiar with?
