  |G  General Audiences. All ages admitted.  
  |PG  Parental Guidance Suggested. Some material may not be suitable for
  |PG-13  Parents Strongly Cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for
children under 13.  
  |R  Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.  
  |NC-17  No one 17 and under admitted.  

Rather simplistic, no? Perhaps cleaving a delicate dish with too thick a

I propose--

GNP --general audience, but no parents allowed
PGP --parental guidance for other parents (sort of a parent's-only test 
          viewing; good for babysitters too)
PG   --6 (more specific generalization must be A Good Thing)
        --anything up to 21; what's so special about adolescence?
RH   --restricted to humans (only senitient beings permitted)
RP   --restricted to primates (two legs good!)
REO --restricted to Europeans Only
NC-40 --the damage is already done; lighten up and let it roll!
