the under-17 rule

How are we counting? I can think of a few characters where I have no idea how old they are for the purpose of this rule.

Anaander: is 3000 years old, but some of her bodies are less than ten. Personally putting those bodies in sexual situations squicks me and I don't want to prompt that or write it or read it, but I doubt Anaander would give a fuck and I can see different people drawing this line in different places.

One Esk 19: at the point in time immediately the rest of her was killed, One Esk's consciousness was about 2000 years old, and her one remaining body had been alive for about 400 years, but was developmentally 16 years old (put into suspension at 16, suspended for centuries, then thawed out and hooked up just days before everything went to hell.)

Tisarwat: was 17 years old before Anaander made her into part of Anaander. Then she was 3000 years old with a 17 year old body. A few weeks after that, Breq and Medic took the implants out, resulting in an entirely new person. That person has the memories of a 17 year old and a 3000 year old, the body of a 17 year old, but her consciousness is by now less than two months old.

Same anon: I forgot two.

Dlique and Zeiat: it is never stated in canon how old they are, or indeed whether chronological time has any meaning to them.

Makes sense to me that a mental minefield would be a mindfield.
