As I see it packages fall into one of three categories:

1) Programs
2) Data associated with programs (ie King James, fortune, websters)
3) Data associated with linux/debian (FAQs, HOWTOs, policy manuals)

(I could of course be entirely wrong about those categories, but I really
can't be arsked to trawl through the 2.5k+ packages that we already have)

IMHO I think this is as good a set of criteria as any other, and ensures a
modicum of relevancy. Debian is growing fast enough as it is w/o having
every single piece of use{full|less} info on the net debianised and bunged
into the dist.
