"More valuable" is all relative to likelihood to be published.  I  
believe rel="nsfw" was suggested on this list a while back, and this  
same vagueness issue was raised at the time.  But I think in  
practice, almost no one is publishing ratings with links, and many  
people are publishing "NSFW" warnings.  So vague as it may be, it's  
apparently communicating something useful on the live web today.
