Yeah - I have to admit I favour the shorter category names personally. If we 
are going to use a long one then I think it should be sci-visualisation (or I 
guess the American spelling sci-visualization) to keep it more general. There 
any quite a few apps that deal with visualisation such as gwyddion and some 
of the molecule rendering packages. It was intended mainly for the plotting 
packages that are mostly in media-gfx right now.

I wasn't so sure on the long versus short, but if that is a policy we have as 
a herd I will stick to it.

There are quite a few possibles - I was going to look at drawing up a list of 
some of them. I am sure I won't catch them all though.
