I think it is better to have only two categories:
- "free (should be used, if possible)"
- others: not recommended, non free, etc.
Two categories (Good and Bad, White and Black) is much easier for people
Others have adopted the same approach. For example Greepeace has made a
list of products containing genetically modified organisms. They started
with a 3 categories (no gmo, doubt, gmo) and thay have nowadays only 2
categories (no gmo, [doubt & gmo]).
