should there be an age for black belts?

This is a question often asked of me. and i think that there should be an age limit on when you should get your black belt. For instance i know a 15 year old kid who has his black belt, but lacks leader ship in the calss. and has let his technique go sloppy.
I believe that if you take the responsibility of the rank then you must show leadership in the class and out of the class. I a rank under him should not have to be telling him to settle down in class, Which brings me to my main point. kids under the age of 18 should not be tested for their black belt. what do you guys think?
