I suggested that introduction of new categories should not be restricted, 
but at least a warning and a question should be raised if you introduce a 
new category, because it may only be the difference between "User 
Interface" and "User-Interface". The downside is, that introducing new 
categories in order to place "unique" packages is too tempting.
