I really do think "target age" is useful, particularly as we try to  
convince teachers to use Etoys in the classroom . . . any time we can  
save them as they look for relevant examples will help increase Etoys  

Also, ranking will be a factor here as well.  The education team will  
rank projects in the featured section, so the exceptional projects can  
stand out.   Being able to see the best projects for ages 8 to 12 is  
very useful.
