Thats a very closed attitude for you. You're acting like with new rules they cant create more new policies to help govern them.
Just being realistic.
Excluding age-restricted videos from monetisation has been there since day 1, I have no reason to believe they'd relax that, especially given the additional ineligible categories added last year.
Youtube is very stalwart. I'd like to think they could change and adapt, but I sincerely doubt they will, since they don't really need to.
If 60% of their income revenue starts getting flagged, they'll need 'adult ads' to keep their money coming in.
If that was even remotely close to being true, then sure, but look at the top 100 channels by views: http://socialblade.c.../100/mostviewed
What're the common themes? Music videos ([artist name]VEVO), content aggregators (Machinima, Movieclips, Watchmojo), media companies (EMI, GMM, Disney), and variety/comedy (Ellen Degeneres, Smosh, Pewdiepie).
If you switch over to top 100 by subscribers it's largely the same, but you start to see more of the variety channels like Vsauce, Dude Perfect, Slow Mo Guys, etc.
Those are the moneymakers, not the relatively niche channels affected by these policies.
