Even though I wholeheartedly agree with you about this, until we can
have such a system in place, the issue with this particular package,
being targeted at kids, is important enough to deserve the explicit
comment I mentioned in the description. If, for example, there was
nudity or promotion of violence in, lets say, gcompris or tuxmath, I
would certainly expect that too. It would be great to have such a
system for all packages, including those targeted at more adult users,
but I would say that in the case of packages targeted at small kids,
being honest, explicit and transparent in the package description
should be a must.
