Some Questions For All You Manga Fans

Why don't the publishing companies that are launching these manga trades and censoring content to reflect the age group they're targeting and inciting various nerd riots merely bump up the age group they're targeting? Wouldn't that work in most cases? Is there really enough of a market track record that companies would be compelled to aim younger with books in order to maximize sales? Is there really a restrictive policy that makes sense regarding trades, as opposed to something packaged for the kids market or for newsstand consumption?
