User has a reputation above a certain amount with less than a certain number badges. Intended for users who get lots of points a little at a time through many questions/answers. Would help users who get discouraged because they even though they are contributing they aren't earning many badges.

I don't think this would be a good idea. I generally don't like the idea of badges that just reward gaining reputation, because reputation and the associated privileges are already the rewards for doing that.

The other part of your suggested criteria, fewer than a certain number of badges, is not good both because it encourages users not to get badges (which themselves generally promote good behavior), and because it makes the badge impossible to earn for a significant population of the site. This currently only applies to the precognitive and beta badges.
