I'm afraid that you're going a bit too far. I thought about making costs 
with illegal calls and smses. Virus protection should appear only when 
viruses appear. Otherwise scanner would kill system's performance (as 
NAV do in my computer and I always disable it while not installing 
unknown apps).
Think about average users. They don't need rating. They sometimes even 
don't know exactly what spam is. It has to be as simple as possible.
