Most of the stuff in the media-* doesn't have anything to do with "the 
media" - whatever that is.

Media likely stands for multimedia - generally referring to anything 
that has to do with sound, graphics, video, etc.  I doubt that the 
jsmath font has anything to do with "the media," but it is a font, and 
fonts have to do with graphics, and graphics are part of multimedia.

If we REALLY want to move I guess we can do so, but I don't think that 
the category was supposed to be suggestive of the news or entertainment 
industries.
