Poor code is reflected by instability and feature problems.
Layering in beaurocracy to verify something that would get weeded on
other criteria seems like a waste of precious resources.  If the
community consensus is that a app is viable, then electing a
collection of 'benevolent code fascists' to override them will not
help.  Who would want to be put in the position to judge the code ?

Lets try to keep the community fun.  If you think an app is crap say
so with a smile :-)  People will listen.  Don't elect a committee to
do it.
