Creation of a new categories is fine. pkg moves are bad.
See the countless other posting on this subject of why pkg
moves are bad.

Sure I'll step up and say I object to the part of your plan which
involves a shitton of pkgmoves. Moving pkgs from existing categories
into another category causes numerous problems that portage can't solve
as easy as the rest of us might think so please just don't do that
part. I've got no objection to the creation of a new category for *new*
