A remote interface that uses morse code could be written. Apologies to 
those that do not read /.

Seriously though, even if you don't have a keyboard on your front end, 
I doubt there are many people who run myth on a frontend without a 
keyboard that do not have another machine without a keyboard. You could 
run the frontend on your desktop to write reviews with your keyboard, 
or it could be a mythweb module, and you could use the keyboard on your 
regular browser.

As for the real point, the reviews would have to be much better than, 
for example, the product reviews on Amazon. While there are benefits to 
everyone having a voice, the spam factor also comes into play.
