Does Google Use ICRA Sitemap Tags for Adult Oriented Website Material?

Earlier this week, we had a webmaster ask how to tell Google that they have adult-themed images (mixed with regular images) and didn't want Google to filter out their site because of the few questionable images. Now, we're seeing a related issue to the extent that the webmaster actually has an adult-oriented page and he wants to denote this in his sitemap file so that the crawlers could process this accordingly.

JohnMu says that crawlers understand the ICRA tag. I suppose that's great, but the next step would be for Google to actually acknowledge in a webmaster tools document that they are processing those tags.

So -- Google, what's the verdict here?

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups (original question) and Google Groups (ICRA tags question).
