RPMforge uses X-Red-Hat-Base everywhere. Should we be worried ? :)
What's the effect of changing the category, what is it used for ?

Or are there any plans to use this in the future ? It may make a 
difference. If it's a branding kind of thing, we might want to make a 
macro out of it.

RPMforge uses %{desktop_vendor} already when using desktop-file-utils so 
people can rebrand packages if they care.

Any opinions about both ?
