Imho we should have separate "use counters" that you mentioned in your
response and student votings for each UMO version.
Any versioned change to the object may change votings and usage
significantly. If we keep track of it in the UU, it will help authors with
the improvements of their UMOs and students with better selection of
objects from Repository.
