Perhaps, it's a bit arbitrary. I thought about languages, language libs 
vs development tools (make-like tools/VCS) and general libraries,
which currently have library/* fmris. However, I agree, they can be 
merged, if we create second-level directories (devel/python, 
devel/perl).
We also need something like network/ for network services 
(service/network/* , network/*).

This is a list of  top-level categories in package fmris (on my build 
server):
$ pkg list -H |awk ' { print $1; }'  |cut -d / -f 1  |sort |uniq -c
       1 SUNWcs
       1 SUNWcsd
       2 archiver
       7 audio
       3 backup
       3 benchmark
       6 codec
       4 communication
       3 compatibility
       6 compress
      11 consolidation
       2 crypto
       6 data
      51 database
      21 desktop
      99 developer
      12 diagnostic
       5 driver
      12 editor
       1 entire
       6 file
      41 gnome
      40 image
       1 install
     514 library
       3 locale
       3 mail
       1 mate
       2 media
       1 metapackages
       1 naming
      16 network
       7 package
       7 print
       2 release
      27 runtime
       3 security
      27 service
       6 shell
      98 system
       7 terminal
       2 test
      28 text
       2 video
     194 web
     134 x11

(archiver vs compress distinction is fun)

Let's rename some categories so that they more correspond to fmris:

archiver # archiver/*, compress/*
closed      # closed source components
database (database/*, service/database/*)
developer (developer/*, library/*)      # development tools and 
libraries
desktop  (desktop/*) # gnome, enlightenment, common tools
encumbered
font #  (system/font/*, print/filter/ghostscript/fonts/*)
games (games/*)
image (image/*)
input-method (system/input-method)
metapackages
multimedia (audio/*, video/*)
network (serive/network/*, network/*)
openindiana # illumos and OI-specific software
shell (shell/*)
sysutils (security/*, backup/*, test/*, etc)
text (text/*)
web (web/*)
x11 (x11/*)

Do you see some components, which doesn't suit to this classification?
