no one can tell how the reputation services for CSV will operate, but
we can look at the DNSBLs in use today. several of these have a

The solution to abusive reputation providers is well-known, at least
outside of the computer world. See various "eco-friendly" logos, and
how their chain of responsibility (i.e. certification) is structured.
You need at least a two-level reputation service. One which
interacts with customers, and the other which certifies the reputation
services. This structure has been demonstrated to solve a lot of
issues with abusive and/or corrupt reputation services.
