True, but isn't that automated as from the sections "required" and
"standard" and combined with the input from popularity-contest?
Or it could be automated at least.

If the suggestion about the classification is tried.  How would it work
to just divide in the sections like "admin", "x11", "gnome", "net" etc.
for "extra" and maybe "optional"?

Pesonally I wouldn't like that because I like some "optional" packages
from everywhere around.  Imho the popularity based system will work
better coz you want bits of everything most of the time.
