Please include both Moderate and Restricted options for YouTube

YouTube has more than one "restricted" mode. The highest restriction is called Restricted, but there is also a lower option called Moderate. It would be nice to have both of those options, instead of just Restricted.

    3. Make sure that the "Restricted mode" NextDNS option is disabled (to avoid conflict with the rewrites)

    cf. screenshot:

    And the resulting behavior:
