Well there are multiple mead categories, but for trad:
dry .990 to 1.010
semi-sweet 1.010 to 1.025
sweet 1.025 and up
No they won't boot you, but the whole thing about categories and guidelines is that your mead is judged not only on how good it is in a lot of different ways, but on how well it fits within the guidelines. It'll lose points is all if it's mis-categorized.
There used to be online style guidelines but I can't find them for some reason. Good thing I have a printout! They've got to be somewhere though.
