At which point, you need some sort of review board, where then every

- TuxPaint is rated E for Everyone
- quake3 is rated T for violent content
- tcl is rated M for inappropriate language

I'm going to go out on a limb and claim we don't have the resources to
coherently do this.

I don't see why we would need a review board. Just add a guideline asking
packagers to tag their packages if they think the contents could be
inappropriate out of courtesy toward their fellow community members.

If some packagers don't give a damn then that's fine and not a lot can be
done about that but why not give the community the tools to self
regulate?

Just because there is a general guideline does not mean there has to be
enforcement through an iron-fisted review board.

Without some sort of standards, the tags would likely become meaningless
to rely on in practice. (See also: the RPM Group tag.)

Then let the people who are affected with this come up with a proposal and deal with it on it's technical merits. There is no enforcement involved. If that proposal is too difficult/complex to implement it can be rejected. If a packager is unwilling to put such a classification in his package then it's up to the people concerned to work it out.
