Mark, so how about a system wide parental control? Cultures differ
across countries. What is
acceptable to one community might not be acceptable to other. Rather
than making choices, how
about giving them a UI where they can switch off various content types. e.g.
* Violence (like violence games)
* Adult content
* <insert any other category>

This isn't to censor, but allow filtering. Ubuntu should not add
default filters. Probably the GUI can be
added to "Privacy" in System Settings.
