Yes and ....i am talking with ronny about this very thing.
In fact, I think it would be cool if people who start and moderate steemit tags would figure out ways to distribute tokens in that tag to others. That token could even pay dividends on part of what various allied accounts that mod that tag's content earn in steemusd....maybe even converted to bitUSD or other tokens of their choice.

This would effectively add a new layer of rewards that makes it more possible for steem to remain a firm and stable foundation while features like this can give more options and value.
