> 2. Keep it voluntary.

A way to keep it voluntary would be to keep internally the current account age for trading limits (or maybe allowing to gain just one step after one month).  But the account age shown to other users would work as suggested in this proposal.  So it would be up to the other users the decision to trade or not with 0 account age users.  Again direct communication between traders would be very interesting here as an old user could be comfortable to trade with a 0 account user if both agree for whatever reasons (in the future local whitelisting methods when implemented).    

> If 99.9% of trades so far have been honest....

My view on that is that there is a high chance that scammers are not coming to Bisq because of low liquidity.  And unfortunately the harm of just a few dishonest trades, even if just every once in a while, could be very big. 

The good thing of your suggestion of implementing the measures proposed here as optional, is that if we keep for long enough, we might have a reasonable feedback of what works and what doesn't work.
