I was thinking the same thing. I was wrestling with the idea whether we
could just use groups or not. A package can belong to more than one
group. The issue with that is that groups are not just meaningless
metadata. They're actually used in package installation, removal and
dependencies. It might be bad to muck with that. In that case it would
be good to introduce a tags array.
