I would humbly suggest that the underlying data (graphs/categories/etc) be organized in such a way as to allow multiple categorizations. That way there could be any number of different categorizations applied to the same graphs, as one overall categorization may reflect only one particular viewpoint.

This way the chosen categories (however you decide to choose) would not be set in stone, but would be intimatly flexible.

Also a single graph should be allowed to occur under multiple categories of a particular categorization.

Just what I would like to see :)
