Well, the obvious pitfalls are that

a) a simple integer field will overflow eventually
b) terms that are used often will have astronomically high scores

Simple percented score increases will not work as they make
all terms asymptotically reach the same weighting unless some
sort of percentage of sum of all scores is taken into account
which is prohibitive in terms of speed.

I am not sure I see a Good solution currently.
