The epitomy of the expression "if you can't be a good example then it is best to be a terrible warning."? :)
Cuil is a sobering reminder
I've solved the submissions problem to some extent. On the monitoring aspect, the algorithms will detect any change in a site and its hosting.
In my experience it's easier to get submissions than visitors - SEOs take the trouble to find the sites and submit; users often don't know about the sites and never find them.
The theoretical side is perhaps the easiest part. The hard parts are going to be scaling it and publicising it, and, inevitably, getting users.
