Making such a scheme compulsory would be unacceptable to people who wish
to interact with network owners without disclosing that in public ...

... sometimes because they do not wish their names to be known,
sometimes because they do not wish their techniques for (and speed at)
detecting abuse to become known.

So making it compulsory would be completely counterproductive.

Making use of such a website voluntary would also be unwise because the
people who do not wish their reports to be public are probably in the
majority (I speculate) so that reputation system would fail to include
the majority of reports that are made (and I again speculate) the
overwhelming majority of reports that are acted upon.

Producing non-biased reputation systems is very hard ...

... I think also there is a risk of total confusion by conflating many
different types of abuse and many different types of reporter into a
single system.
