It's an interesting thought, but I'm not sure it's really necessary.
First off, there's a risk of additional overhead with minimal benefit. After all, we already have a set of tools for discovering who the heaviest posters are and the relative reputations of their contributions.
In short, you already have a number of tools available for discovering the best of what others have had to say.
Granted, good code doesn't always receive the same number of votes as an entertaining poem, but it's an idea, though tracking the posts linked in various home nodes might provide a clearer picture of what you might need to catch up on.
Besides, reputation already tracks the votes of the entire community. In some ways, that's more valuable than tracking your own voting habits.
