I'd agree. Categories were an early system of trying to bring basic
semantics into web catalogs of things. But realistically, they scale
very poorly. Also I expect that charms will be multi-faceted. CEPH is
useful as a block store, a filesystem, and an object store. At best we
could put it in the "storage" category. Over time the general categories
get fat and the specific ones stay quite lean.

+1 for tags. I like the idea of having *official* tags like launchpad
does. We can even make our static analysis tool flag any non-official
tags as warnings so that we don't get a tag cloud explosion.
