We talked about having one a while back but decided against it. In my experience, systems like that tend to get abused. "Popular" forum members end up with a lot of points while unpopular ones get voted down or get less points. As a result, people might give more credence to the popular member over the unpopular one instead of considering the actual advice being given. Granted, that might already be an issue with post count, but as it is it's less likely to be abused, I think.
I do kind of like the idea of having custom user titles. I'll bring it up with the other members of staff and see what they think.
