I think what we should keep in mind is that categories should make
sense for a user looking for some category of applications.

On the one hand we shouldn't slice it too thinly because then it's not
a category anymore.

But too broad is bad too.

I tend to agree that producing audio/music is somewhat different from
consuming/copying it...

If you look closely, you'll notice we already have pretty appropriate
categories for things like software development.  But development of
other things is not so well categorized imho...
