Another side of this coin is that if we (for example - I'm not
advocating) said "no porn in clipart", it really wouldn't affect a large
number of images.
Fact is, the vast majority of the images will be just fine. By setting
up a standard, you are not severely crippling the library (whatever that
standard might be).

Good point. People who feel more strongly about an issue (e.g.
pornography) would be over-represented.
But we can draw a different line. For example, say that if the image is
legal "almost everywhere" then it's ok. Just pick a reasonable
definition of "almost everywhere" just to avoid a tiny minority from
So we could say, "we will remove an image if you can show that it's
illegal in enough countries to represent 3% of the world's population or
more". You can argue about whether 3 is the best number. Personally I
think any number is fine, as long as it's "small".
