Well... If you're going to argue along those lines then I'd also argue
that it's up to those who care about restricting the package set to
maintain the list.  Because having package maintainers identify what
might potentially be offensive to people in cultures widely removed from
themselves and adding them to a non-binding, out-of-spec file list on
the wiki is going to break down on so many levels.

If you want better tools to help the people who care about different
sorts of offensive content maintain and generate such a list, we have
something to talk about.  But having "add something to a wiki list"
become a Packaging Guideline is something I'll vote against.  We're
trying to move things like this (for instance, the retired package list)
off of the wiki, not add more to it.
