Is there going to be a Popular Profile badge?
Imagine the situation:
- when the total unique visitors of some guy's personal profile is greater than 10.000 in a week or something like that he could earn a badge for that.

The sole purpose of badges on Stackoverflow is to encourage desired behaviors. All the badges reward a behavior that should be encouraged as it helps the site. Posting good questions, answers, editing posts to make them better, popularizing the site, etc.
Do we really want to encourage people to be profile whores? This encourages behavior like trying to elevate yourself above everyone else in bad ways. I don't think the profile view counter was intended to be used for competition.
