Link channel surfing and program ratings.

If I'm bored and just flipping through the channels mindlessly, I'm likely to come across some utterly obnoxious show I hate and despise and would rate 10 thumbs down if TiVo let me go that far. Even the two seconds it takes to change the channel again are too many :-).

It would be a really nice feature if "channel up" and "channel down" could arrange to just skip over channels that are currently showing programs that have a 3 thumbs down rating.

I know what you mean. My wife can't stand it when she changes tuners and finds it on a show with three thumbs down. Her problem would require preemptive channel changing of idle tuners (without recording) which seems like it would cause more problems than it solves (but it's not that different from Suggestions).
Your idea would certainly be a pleasant way to watch live TV.
