It could show how you did right from when you joined, and all the swings inbetween...

This could be placed into the current profile page.

but i do think it can have also practical purposes.
the best example is wacicha. a great player that has a lot of public games so the chances of getting in one of his games is pretty high. he's a lieutenant now but 2 weeks ago he was a corporal and a month ago he was an officer. so his point swings are very high. well if i never heard of him and see he's a corporal i'd join a game not expecting to be outplayed by somebody that was a major. so a graph would warn me of the possibilities of that player.
also such a graph would show you a very good indication of a player's current form. i've had swings of 4-500 points up and down. and i know for a fact that my play style changes depending on the score. i was a captain for quite a while and then i suddenly dropped in a day 300 points and became a lieutenant again. my play style changed because i wanted to get back to captain. i played better and got back 400 points. plus being on a good streak may make a player more aggressive because he feels more confident.
also seeing a guy that's constantly over 2000 points let's you know he rarely makes mistakes he has a constant play style and so on. lots of info can be gathered by studying the recent games and the way score changed.
for example a guy is on a downfall of 400 points look at his recent games and you see 20 assassin games, all lost. it's clear that guy is trying something new and apparently he sucks at it. so if you have the chance to join a game with him with those settings then you should do it. even if his score could indicate he's much better than you.
