The problem with doing so is that it can lead to a confusing UI in some
cases.  We've tried (hard) to get to where packages are only listed for
one component.  I'd like to try to stay there.

I see a real disconnect between a policy like the above, the current names, and the current usage.

Take a look at the following two categories:
   <id>gnome-software-development</id>
   <name>GNOME Software Development</name>
<description>Install these packages in order to develop GTK+ and GNOME graphical applications.</description>

   <id>xfce-software-development</id>
   <name>XFCE Software Development</name>
<description>Install these packages in order to develop GTK+ and XFCE graphical applications.</description>

In the former, there are packages such as gazpacho, gtkmm24-devel and anjuta, et. al. In the latter there are gtk2-devel, glade2, glib2-devel, et. al.

I think there will need to be one of two changes:
    1) Allow gtk2-devel to be in both GNOME and XFCE development categories
    2) Create a GTK+ and language bindings development category
