agreed... even we have problems ourselves trying to define clearly the status 
of certain elements. i've discovered that it's still news for many people 
outside of KDE (e.g. GNOME devs) that we're moving to DBUS in kde4; with a 
proper tagging system on this wouldn't be nearly the 
challenge it is right now.

this will require some additional software dev done for the 
website. as i understand it's a wiki, though i have no idea which one or how 
extensible it is. who is the current webmaster for fd.o?

yes, it was at least partly written with this in mind. which is why the 
wording is so amazingly manageresque. i "love" author-by-committee ;)
