If it is about competing operators then you should aggregate an
operator's tor instances not care to much about single tor instances of
a given operator? You might just team-up with http://tor-roster.org/

Creating incentives for a high uptime would create incentives to run
relays insecurely (never upgrade, never reboot, run vulnerable software
I wouldn't give away awards for low uptimes either - just leave it out
of the equation?

With over 94% CW  [1] being routed by Linux relays, why is it good to
run more Linux relays?

I'd say create incentives for non-Linux relays.

How about anti-incentives?

-5 for relays @ OVH added after a certain point in time?
