[Clipart] Is anyone working on categorizing the existing images?

Can't we just have both?

I mean, a limited number of strong categories, multiple selection at file 
upload just to place the images on the website index with "miscellaneous" 
as default (assuming that there will be a browseable index with thumbnails 
somewhere) and weak categorization as a recommendation for keywords to be 
put into the metadata of the file itself. A search function somewhere 
would then be able search and/or index the metadata according to those.

In the end the metadata is up to the author's fancy... I don't think that 
the upload mechanism should be inserting stuff into the file, but the 
project might set some requirements for inclusion in released packages etc.
