I think it would be nicer to just be able to have ports tagged with some metadata (passes lint, buildbot was able to process, installed by n # of users who have agreed to send stats back to the project, etc.)

End users could use the metadata to make the kinds of decisions one might make for 'stable' vs. 'unstable' stuff elsewhere.
