That's not that nutty an idea.

I suggest that you keep it much simpler. What about just letting
people file bugs against debian-sanitize if they find content in a
package to be insulting? Then the maintainer (you) evaluates, uses
some good judgement, and either adds a Conflicts: line or doesn't.
If somebody doesn't like your judgement, they can always uninstall
debian-sanitize. Badda bing, badda boom.
