I thought about that too but as you pointed out there's several Damns and Hells used in TMP where there's only one of each in The Black Hole, so obviously there's more to the rating than language.
Well, Anthony Perkins gets skewered by a corkscrew, as I recall, which was probably violent enough to get them that PG-rating . . ..
It was hidden behind papers though and there was no blood, unlike Star Trek VI where there was the was threat of an "R" just for the floating blood during the assassination scene.
