The old gunk is unrelated to what menu evo ends up in. Thats decided by
the main category.

If you look at the three things evolution does: mail, contacts and
calendar, two out of three fit very well into office. Its the nature of
categorization that 'relatively similar' things eventually end up in
different buckets. One of the many reasons why hierarchical menus are a
suboptimal solution to organizing applications...
