if accepted by the opposing player, automatically set the game to unrated (if it isn't already) and be banned from tounrnaments.
I agree, but I still think that this will cause more complications than it's worth.
this happens I'd like to see it in non-rated games only. If someone is teaching it should be non-rated already. If someone is having a "fun" game where the rules of chess (touch move etc) aren't important & rating doesn't matter (rating includes not making cock-ups as well as making good moves) then it should be an unrated game already.
An unthoughtout idea - how about a "teacher mode" where the game was unrated and the game could be manipulated by either just the "teacher" or both sides in any way desired. This would allow a teacher to show the downfall of one avenue, then retrace the game to where the pivitol move was made to show alternatives...
