I once suggested that the software and content development be split and 
separate email lists be provided. And if any classification of translations 
was going to be provided then a group should be formed apart from the 
development groups. Ideally, that  classification group would have no 
official connection to the development groups. Distributors of content 
could check with the classification group and then indicate that an item is 
rated by the xyz as high/low regard, un/orthodox. Distributors would be 
free to carry or not carry an item or to use or not use the rating system.
