Yes, I see your point and it's a good one. My main counter to it would be that small action is better than no action. This is especially true if such "reviews" are in a public place where a certain amount of advertising can be provided.
Be loud with a positive spin.
Moreover, it seems to me that such a repository should be set up such that a dojo with a positive review can link to it. "Here, look what someone else said about us."
I don't know, maybe it's as much a pipe dream as tracking down and exposing active frauds. But it seems a place to start.
