Generally agreed. I would only point out 18 is not world-wide age
considered as adult who make their legal decision without the consent
of their parents. In Japan, the age is 20. If you think it important,
we are better to amend this part "at least 18 and explicitly or over
the age at which they are capable to act without the consent of their
parent in the country they reside".
For the curious:
There's a strange exception still in the dutch lawbooks where in one
situation you can be treated as a legal adult as young as 15 (It's
one of those strange old laws that's still in the books, but probably
hasn't been used for a century).
Oh, but actually, but that does give me an idea on how to apply the [[KISS
principle]] and make the line shorter:
"Checkusers should be legal adults in the jurisdiction in
which they reside."
read you soon,
 For the terminally curious: If you are under 18, you are still
permitted to marry, provided you have parental permission, and provided
you are older than 15. As soon as you are married, you become a legal
adult. I don't think anyone has actually done this in the last 100
years, but it's still technically possible, AFAIK.
