If all packages are to go in comps, we need a more fine-grained comps.

Comps evolved over time into something that doesn't make a whole bunch of sense to me. Is the main use of comps still for installation groups within yum and anaconda ? A lot of packages are not installation "targets" but simply libraries that should only be installed by being pulled in from dependency resolution. Now if we're trying to "categorize" all packages nonetheless, it'd be better to have a tag-based system from packagedb, where packages can be "tagged" a-la-gmail, and also belong into multiple tag groups as some things
 really belong into multiple categories...
