: The setup for this question was to simplify the actual environment,
: we're not actually demoting popular authors.

Well, the beter you describe your problem in terms of your *actual* goal,, 
the more likely people can help give you applicable answers...
XY Problem

Your question appears to be an "XY Problem" ... that is: you are dealing
with "X", you are assuming "Y" will help you, and you are asking about "Y"
without giving more details about the "X" so that we can understand the
full issue.  Perhaps the best solution doesn't involve "Y" at all?
