If a subverse is properly moderated, there's really no need for downvotes.

That really depends. Depending on your goal for the forum neither upvotes nor downvotes might be necessary, or they might both be. I have nothing against a subverse opting for a no downvote feature, but I would not like that to be the only option for subverses. Proper moderation cannot replace the message conveyed by downvotes of users and it is entirely possible that could be a message crucial to a forum's proper functioning.
