I think integrating Stack Overflow with LinkedIn by showing Stack Overflow application in the LinkedIn profile will help increase the attractiveness of a profile.

By just showing Stack Overflow reputation points in the LinkedIn profile it would add value to the profile/resume. For a recruiter this number will mean one more parameter to shortlist, as Stack Overflow reputation point tells about how much a person's solutions, answers and thinking is appreciated by others, his/her technical knowledge and his/her ability to explain, communicate, and convince.

Is there an application already or in development? I did look around a little bit and didn't see any open SDK to develop such application on my own, though I see LinkedIn provide some APIs. Is there something in the pipeline?

You can write your own app and gain extra kudos on your linkedIn by saying hey, look, here is a linkedin app that I wrote that pulls the reputation from StackOverflow and here is my rep of 1. For more info go to stackapps.com – Igor Zevaka Jul 14 '10 at 3:51
