Allowing the flexibility of multiple categorisations is nice. Dewey to me seems like an elegant solution that won't gain acceptance; it's too obscure on the net.

I see two areas that need work;

- keeping the number of categorization schemes to a minimum, so channels don't have to have a list as long as your arm

- having a standard format to describe the categories, themselves, so computers and people can easily read, parse and manipulate the categorisations.
