I am not sure whether having each time to think of a categorisation 
would not cause enough trouble to discourage people from sending useful 
posts that may be difficult to categorise. And, on  the other hand,  
have to include a number of controversial but time-honoured categories 
of the kind : "New Version New Bugs", It's not a bug it's a feature, 
you twit", "Yet Another Stroke of Genius!!!", "A counter-example to 
Fermat's Theorem!"  and so on...
And what about this one?
