I am looking from a users point of view. If I'm looking for a console
based ogg player, the last section I'd check is multimedia. That belongs
to sound, in my opinion. So do the various trackers and drum machines.
You can't just rename sound, and move the media players from other
sections there.

You can't satisfy all users if one package can be only in one section, I
believe. Eg, I'd expect Totem to be in Gnome, Multimedia, Sound and
Graphics. Not any single one of those, but all of them.

If you want to change something, make it right, and don't replace
something inflexible with another inflexible half-solution, but aim for
a better one, I'd say.
