Good question. I was thinking about that for a while, and didn't come
to any conclusion.

This doesn't make much sense to me. If we want to give non-students
voting access, then we should create separate counters.
Although I don't see too much value in "Teacher votes" or any such,
as they will have to have "teacher access" to an UMO prior to casting
such a vote, which means these votes will be just a tool to push object
author in some direction. Better way to judge such an object, I think is
by having a use counters (how many other objects this UMO is included in,
how many people studied it). Combined with student votes, it'll be good
enough evaluation system.
