Why don't we just figure out the obvious ones that people might want and
leave it at that, rather than complicating things?

At any rate it might be nice the original ones can't be deleted. e.g.
you could tie special linking into the addressbook if you knew People
and Places always existed, etc.

Just quick random thoughts; but I think you need to say why we need new
root categories?
