That's because BS has No standards in the first place.  If it did, books which 
were good enough to be legitimately called excellent could be "locked" and, 
thus, not replaceable.

  I think the problem, in the situation Tiff's brings up, is that Gustavo 
  just takes the word of the submitter/validator that the newly submitted 
  replacement is better.
  No comparison is done; and so much is subjective anyway.
  K1000 scores, of course, can be one comparison.  But then someone else may 
  suggest that the formatting is better, the book is less prone to stripper 
  ruin, the page breaks are more true, whatever.
  Without standards in this area, this just becomes a can of worms.  And 
  without sufficient time for an administrator to examine the situation, 
  Bookshare on its end can hardly be expected to make a decision.
  I understand Tiff's frustration, but given the nature of the BookShare 
  system and its resources, I doubt that this can be dealt with.
