I disagree here, but anyway, you have to find a balance. Does the name
be intuitive for what it does, or be intuitive by the fact that a
package can have multiple categories. Being intuitive in both would be
nice though, but i would clearly prefer the former if i had to choose.
Also, i am not sure that your claim is right, i know for example that
the ACM papers have categories to clasify them, and have more than one.
Similar things may happen in other places too.

You also have to consider subtle different meaning in various languages

Aspect would be nice too, but i still think that categories is the more
intuitive name here.
