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.
