Upon thinking about this more, I don't see the need to display half stars for the score. Instead wouldn't we still rather see the literal score? Because SP's vote is dynamic in the sense that you can change your vote on a whim, have the ability to see your vote, and don't want to be too influenced by other people's votes, it only makes sense to not display the average stars. However when viewing the vote page it could show the stars instead of 10/10.
A simple way of explaining it is that the votes themselves should behave the same way they do now (vote below, score above).

That shouldn't be an issue considering that the current method is cumulative in the sense that it collects score rather than averages it. The star idea is not to use the old method, but to enhance the new method to look like the old one. But with slightly better looking stars too. And yes, images/pages should display their number of votes. I wouldn't want that to go away.
