I agree. That what i meant by 'not necessarily non-intersecting  
categories'. It might be a bad choice to use the word "category" like  
that - I'm sorry.

But it was mostly meant as an example of an idea we could want in  
such database. Since I0 said:

"help with database-design [...] might be appreciated"

I thought we (the potential users of the database) in this phase  
could brainstorm and discuss ideas on how we would like it.
