I sure there are.  I come up with these things off teh top of my
head, and I am not a professional programmer, game developer or
anything related.  I am a complete hobbyist.  But I think the idea
could work.  Perhaps not as simply as it was stated, but as a way to
curb the abuses that some other systems are prone to.  For example,
add the ability to provide bonuses on a per-case basis for good RP
that an admin sees, stir in the ability to flag a conversation so
that it gets logged for the admins to look at if you think it was
good RP, and mix well.  Still not a pure mechanical RP reward
system, but it looks good for my tastes.
