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.
