Those categories are taken from KEYWORDS (master entries). I guess it wouldn't be difficult to still have substancial entries for those packages, if some misc package maintainer would make the job to break their package into pieces. BTW, I have to admit this choice is not easy to make for several reasons, the main one beeing to keep the ability to modify one's own contributions.
For those packages, a collaborative plattform such as SourceForge and so on, with Sync-ability, could be a good choice.
