There is a plan to have a plain-text file of attribute-value pairs outside
of the package, with both a web interface and server-side program to
set attributes.  The attributes would be shown on the package page and
could be used for searching.

One of these attributes could be categories, overriding what's given in
the .cabal file.  (But there are many other uses too.)

Independent of the implementation, there's a need to agree a list of
category names.
