I don't like this idea for many reasons:
* Articles that are updated very often usually got a lot more views than articles that are only published once and never corrected (maybe because they don't need corrections at all);
* Articles with many different downloads may get a lot more downloads simply because some people download all the files. That is, 1 file to download may get 1000 downloads. 5 files to download may get 3500 downloads (I am not considering everyone will get the 5 files).

Also, there is the problem that most popular doesn't mean best article... in fact, many bad articles become very popular and generate a lot of discussions simply because they have problems.
