Any content within the CMS should be able to be rated.
By content everything could be targeted: FAQ entries, articles, wiki
pages, form entries, ...

Currently this is depending on the type of content, which brings
down the responsibility to implement a rating to the module.
However rating itself should be a stand alone module called by
other content modules.

Other modules should be designed to delegate responsibility to the
rating module as needed (could be used for any additional
functionality).

So, basically I ask for using the delegate design pattern to
implement a kind of plug-in (in this case for rating) to be accessed
by any module.
