In general I like it. A few details are worth discussion:

* The "STL" top-level category should be eliminated IMO (thus Containers,
Algorithms, Iterators, and Function objects become top-level
categories). There really isn't any "STL" anymore as a separate entity,
and the term causes occasional confusion.

* The categories should be ordered in some way. Maybe alphabetically?
