In extension lists, the new AMO can have "recommended" or "experimental" indicators for each extension in the upper-left corner of the entry.  There should also exist automatic labels in this manner for popular extensions to indicate to searching users which add-ons the community tends to use.  (though, allow only one label at a time, this being the least priority)  I suggest having labels for extensions that are in the top 10 by active users for each category.  Thus some add-ons would be labeled as "Popular Bookmarking Extension" or "Popular Theme".  (extensions in the top 10 for multiple categories would be labeled with their most popular)  As the number of add-ons on AMO tends to grow, we need more and better ways to filter through search results.

To minimize fluctuating labels for extensions "on the bubble", I suggest leaving the label in place on add-ons which fall out of the top 10 for a couple weeks before automatically downgrading them.

I think the new Delightful Add-ons program proposal accomplishes a lot of this: http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/2010/05/21/a-different-review-process-proposal/

I'd like to merge this into that, so if you have suggestions please add them to the feedback thread for that. Gonna close this bug, but it'll happen when we implement that.
