This is something we've had in mind already. Our extension (I'll send a
separate email about this later) will be updated to include a reporting
mechanism so users can report sites they feel spam, phish or make fraudulent
claims.

I had dinner with Philip Hallam-Baker where he told me about the ID stuff
going into IE 7 to which I replied "Content Labels could do the very same
thing in a more flexible manner that was much more cost effective" <g>.

Code of conduct for Blogs is another use case. This is something we're
looking into - especially with the recent events [1] at TechCrunch [2].

Dan Connolly noted another use case of the consumer protection
variety: describing sites that are believed to be phishing sites and
presenting notice to a user.

Firefox implements a form of this:
