It implies a degree of endorsement. I don't see any problem with
emphasising the difference between those things which are encouraged
as helping the building of an encyclopaedia, from those which are
tolerated but recognised as not doing so, and in some cases actively
impeding the process.
During the heyday of the userboxen, I saw people --- you may have, as
well --- actually welcoming newbies with "and here are some Wikipedia
templates you can use to decorate your userpage". Couldn't have been
less subtle if they'd tried to clobber us with one of the damn things.
