These categories were already there. Maybe data structures is too large.
When I extract the ones that are already in Container the list is
reduced to:

any - Safe, generic container for single values of different value
types, from Kevlin Henney.
compressed_pair - Empty member optimization, from John Maddock, Howard
Hinnant, et al.
fusion - Library for working with tuples, including various containers,
algorithms, etc. From Joel de Guzman and Dan Marsden and Tobias Schwinger.
optional - Discriminated-union wrapper for optional values, from
Fernando Cacciola.
tribool - 3-state boolean type library, from Doug Gregor.
tuple - Ease definition of functions returning multiple values, and
more, from Jaakko Järvi.
uuid - A universally unique identifier, from Andy Tompkins.

I will move UUID to Domain Specific.
Fusion and tuple can be moved to containers.

Yes, I forget to do it. I will do it.
