I do agree. What I am saying is that prioritizing adding Audio to those 
applications that are audio but only have AudioVideo at present would 
allow us to move faster. Adding Video at some point would also be helpful, 
but adding Audio is a more present need.

I am speaking of short term and long term goals. Long term, having great 
categories for all applications can only help. Making Studio easier to 
maintain and deal with new SW the user may install, will help us in 
UbuntuStudio now with less work in this area so we can work elsewhere. It 
will also make Studio work better for 16.04. I don't know how wide spread 
the term is, but I would say lets get the "low hanging fruit" first.
