Yes, I've noticed -- many thanks!

Currently "Votes:" is not part of the recipeinfo block. I put
it in a few pages to be able to provide some measure of a
recipe's popularity, but a lot of people didn't like it.

Use your best judgement. If the recipe maintainer is actively
participating in the comments/discussions, then let them decide
when to move comments. If there are a lot of comments but
no active maintainer, then use your own judgement.

Rather than have separate categories for each, how about a
simple [[!ReviewMe]] category for all of them, along with
a note about what ought to be reviewed.
The [[!ReviewMe]] tag doesn't have to go in recipeinfo -- it
can go near the top of the article.
Another possibility is to do something like
which could have some standard text that says "this recipe is
a candidate for removal... respond below if you think it should
be removed or kept".

That sounds a bit like too much administrative overhead to me.
My preference would be that to propose a new category someone
simply adds it (if the majority disagrees we can refactor easily),
and category deletion is just done by moving all of the pages
in the category to a different category.

If/where appropriate, yes.

And it is greatly appreciated -- thanks!
