It does have a cumulative feature, though the accumulation of thanks doesn't seem to mean anything. It's just a pure counter.
A "thanks" actually can be set in the options to add to your reputation level. If we were to implement that, your reputation would be for informational purposes only and it would not allow you to do anything you can't normally do (i.e. affect another person's reputation level).
I guess that's pretty much what you just said, though.
I can't think of anything I'd want your reputation level or accumulation of thanks to mean; otherwise, we start getting in to something very similar to the old reputation system, and I definitely am not in favor of that.
