As others have already said, it is unlikely that we could come up with a definition of 'unsavory' that is universally accepted.
Also, I doubt that anything technical we could come up with could adequately address this issue as it is not technical in nature.

I propose that no classification whatsoever be implemented.

If at all necessary, we could have a disclaimer stating that it is no endorsement of any kind whatsoever if a piece of software is in the ports tree.
