I saw a few references to this kind of things in the forums, but I haven't actually seen it (as far as I am aware). Is there such a thing as a permanent Hubber score of 100? Is there an accolade for it?
Not that I know of-- though there seem to be a few hubbers who are permanently in that category, and deserve to be.
Making it permanent would be wrong, IMHO.
No, the best one can do is have a pseudo-permanent score that only goes down rarely, but it is hardly assured. I tend to be at 100, but drop down to 95-98 on occasion. Who knows why it fluctuates?
Also, there is no accolade for having 100 Hubscore.
HubScores are never permanent, but with consistent, quality effort, they might appear to be that way.
Some Hubbers get special preference as far as the quality review process goes. I think they may have permanent 100 Hubber Scores. But in reality, the score has little bearing on how well you do here since most traffic comes from outside of HubPages. With the exception of the fact that other Hubbers may take a writer more seriously if they have a higher score.
It came up when Hubbers were upset about the delays in getting new Hubs published do to the quality review process. The powers that be at HP said that some Hubbers that have established reps here are given automatic bypasses from the quality control process and have their Hubs immediately published.
Considering the fact that those Hubbers that receive "special preference", as you put it, have consistently put out quality Hubs for YEARS, the HP staff can be confident that they aren't just going to start publishing crap material for no good reason. With anything in life, if you prove yourself, and earn a good reputation, you are taken more seriously, and are more likely to be trusted.
I was not passing judgement regarding HP's policy of giving certain established Hubbers a bye regarding the quality review process. I was just throwing it out there because I thought it was germane to the topic of permanent 100 Hubber scores (that they may be getting permanent 100 Hubber scores), but it appears everyone has to constantly earn that score no matter what their status is with HP's review process.
I actually think it is a good policy. HP has scared off enough good writers with their excessive rules. Giving established ones that have proven their worth a pass at the quality review process seems like an appropriate policy to keep the good writers happy and to free up staff, so they can focus on the marginal writers that need quality review.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

Ok, so, on rare occasions, I hit 100 as a hubber score. I like to think it's because of my literary genius, but the truth is, it only proves that HubPages still hasn't figured out how to master it's search-engine...
