It's kind of a weird list -- anything remotely related to math or science
ends up getting lumpted into "Applications/Engineering".

Personally, I think the list should be reduced to:

 Core
 Extras

.

For various reasons, it's been found to be more useful to keep the updated
version of this metainformation externally -- in comps.xml and the (same
format) yum groupfiles. Given that that's the case, having this
slightly-askew list of round-peg-square-hole categories in the RPM itself
ought to go.
