polluting provides tags is not a good plan.

Here's a proposal then:

Packages that some people in some cultures may have problems with can be
tagged as such.  Those tags can then be used by people who care to
filter out packages they don't want to be visible.

These tags are to be created and attached to packages by users
(including package maintainers as they use the packages too).  Tags can
be free-form and number of times a tag was selected for a package will
be kept.  Tags will be separate from the binary rpm files but will be
associated with the packages.

It's up to depsolver authors to decide if the tags will be used in any
way in their programs.  It's up to people working on derived
distributions/spins to decide how to use the available tags to filter
the package set.  No mandatory step for adding tags will be imposed for
all package maintainers in the Packaging Guidelines.

I'm fine with tags. I cannot wait for a "family friendly foundation" to mark up our package tags. It shall be a joy.
