I've been thinking that it would be nice to have some kind of aggregate reputation value for each monk to go along with level. Perhaps the average reputation of all posts by a monk would work, maybe someone smarter than me can think of something better.
This value could be very useful in allowing access to hypothetical gated areas like the Other section discussed recently or a job board. You'd need to write a bot that could pass a Turing test to get in. A reputation value would also allow one to size a monk up very quickly.
Rep 1, Level 5 -> Long term lurker
Rep 14, Level 1 -> One good comment
Rep 14 Level 5 -> This monk's headed for Sainthood!
Anyway, a controlled access job board sounds good to me.
