Precisely. And what is currently happening on Wikipedia is that many
editors are pushing for certain images be suppressed or even removed
based on their ability to cause offence (i.e. self-censorship).
This scheme would mean that such images do not need to be removed from
the server, instead letting the end-user choose to hide them.
