What do you think about ability to display the average rating of the album and particular tracks, just like scrobble counter or personal star rating in a main panel column?

For that to be possible, the provider (RateYourMusic) must have a so called API available.
RYM doesn't have that at the moment.

They have a proposal for it that seems to have quite some support, but it dates back to 2009, so don't hold your breath for it:

Well, their team are releasing a new site called Sonemic, I guess API will be availible then.

That would depend on their business/earning model.
And looking at how it never materialized for RYM after 10 years, I am guessing the chances of it happening with Sonemic are very slim.
