Interesting.  I thought there would be a rationale!

But my point is this: I didn't even know that there is a concept of a
"category" on the Haskell web site.  And I visit it regularly.  An
innocent visitor certainly won't.  Now I know that there is such a
concept, but I have no idea what it might mean, or how I might use it.

My suggestion: by all means have categories, whatever they are.  But can
we arrange the home page of so that a new and ignorant
visitor can simply look on the visible page (without prior knowledge)
and know where to go?   And can there be some information readily
accessible that explains what categories are, and how to use them and
add to them?

Sorry to be stupid about this.
