With these, you can fine tune selects on getList functions, etc. Also, this makes things some what symmetric in terms of "value" of a piece of content. As an idea, you could aggregate all status
for content owned by a user and get a pretty useful metric.

We could obviously make UI to add more statuses, but it would be good to settle on some general notions about interpretation of the status number. (eg postives are shown by default, negatives are not without explicit permission and request).
