Sounds good to me too.
But just for the sake of it, I will mention that we have keywords too.

So we can have broad categories like 'printing' and 'display', and 
dll-specific keywords like 'gdi32' and 'comctl32'.

Or we can do the opposite and have broad keywords for 'printing' and 
'display', and then dll-specific categories.

Or we could stay with the current scheme because both of the above may 
be abuses of the keyword system.

Up to you.

One more issue to raise: is the reason why we have 'wine-' as the prefix 
to avoid conflicts between different products? That is, if we have a 
'printing' category in the 'Wine' product, is it going to interfer with 
the 'printing' category of a 'Wine-doc' product?
