It's true that MPAA's "x" rating sounds like what I said.  But the
application of <media:rating scheme="urn:mpaa">x</media:rating> to
content sounds like what I said.  The usage of <media:rating
scheme="urn:mpaa">x</media:rating> and rel-xxx are very different.

A piece of media is marked with <media:rating
scheme="urn:mpaa">x</media:rating> by the publishers.  However,
rel-xxx is used by people in a distributed manner.  People decide for
themselves what should be rel-xxx and are not bound to some set of
MPAA rules.  It's their own personal, family or cultural decision.

See ya
