[summary: saying "allow unrated sites" would allow unrated obscure 
'naughty' sites to still go through, and "disallow unrated sites" would 
most likely prevent valid places.]

The latter would probably be the only acceptible choice for those 
protecting their young'ins.  The problem then becomes a lack of data 
points - a demand - which could be solved by market forces.  Ideally the 
lack of data points could be mitigated by the community working together 
- i.e., the parents can review content on their own (late at night, after 
the kids have gone to bed) and submit SOAPs which could be combined and 
weighed, either under the umbrella of the larger SOAP accumulator or on 
their own.
