Lack of interest [Suggestion] Two Dimensional Polls with Answer Sets

Polls are typically set up with the only permissible answer being 'Yes' or NULL to each option. Current forums offer some flexibility with mutli-select and visibility of votes, however I propose is a two dimensional approach to poll creation.

This could work with 'answer sets' which could be added and configured in the Admin Control Panel. Users setting up new polls would select which answer set to use. Answer sets would be aligned to a scale, so the average answer can displayed in the poll summary.

A few example 'answer sets'
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Strongly Disagree (1), Disagree (2), Neutral (3), Agree (4), Strongly Agree (5)
Poor (1), Acceptable (2), Average (3), Good (4), Excellent (5)

There could also be an option to display the responses by count of each category.

Mockup
Poll Question: Rate the players from Saturdays match

David Pocock 8.2 10 votes
Victor Matfield 8.4 10 votes

Poll Question: How did you find the new pub
Atmosphere 3.1 - Average to Good 18 Votes
Service 2.7 - Acceptable to Average 19 Votes
Music 4.4 - Good to Excellent 19 Votes
Prices 2.3 - Acceptable to Average 19 Votes
