We could go even further, and add a bunch of new meta packages for the
sub-categories we are working on.

So, if we decide to go with only three main categories - audio, video
and graphics, we can have pretty much one meta for each sub-category. I
think this would make it easier for people to find certain software too
using Ubuntu Software Center, or our own installer.
Photography would still be its own meta - additionally new metas would
appear, such as 3D graphics, 2D graphics, etc.

For audio/video players, it might be enough to just have

It would also mean we can fine tune each "workflow"/category, so that we
make sure we really have the best possible tools and utilities for each
area of multimedia production.
