First of all, please note that I'm talking about the element klass *ONLY*.
This is primarily visible to people as the tree structure you see when you
try to select an element in the editor, and should be thought of and
designed mostly as such.
As I told thomasvs, the key here is to discuss the klasses on their own,
without worrying about any directory hierarchies. What I'm hoping is that
something that makes sense will magically appear. Regardless, we all seem
to agree that the element klass should be used more broadly (whatever that
means), so we should settle on a basic structure *first*.
The categories I laid out a while ago still make sense to me, but various
suggestions have been made that not all elements fit into them cleanly.
I'll see if I can come up with a hierarchy that makes sense:
[everything else, in some other general scheme
I haven't figured out yet]
Now, I've thought about swapping the level of things relative to
encoder/decoder and audio/video, etc., but I'm not sure that would make
sense because it would be counter to the other top-level classifications.
But it would be more intuitive: "I need a [Video] [Decoder] for [MPEG]".
Then again "I need a [Decoder] for [Video] in [MPEG] format" makes just as
/me goes to sleep
