Tarot decks like that are gorgeous but can be fairly useless for actual readings, which often depend upon similarities, correspondences and the continuation of the language of symbol from one card to another. If a deck does not use the same symbolism throughout the cards, within each suit with some of those symbols showing up also in the Major Arcana, it's a curiosity but nothing more.

Re: Parental Notification link

I think you'd have to be working in the field to have any idea of the complexities.

Aside from the specifics, I'm left thinking about how hard it would be to write a law of any sort which would be likely to actually get good effects.
