I raise this for the User Experience team to review, as discussed with Eike and 

Functions are allocated to categories in the Help and in the Function Wizard. I 
am re-writing the Help in the Wiki:

and it is clear that the current categories need revision. For 
example: 'Spreadsheet' does not describe the contents of that category; some 
functions appear in different categories in the existing Help and the Function 

There are two candidate models for categories:
ODFF (not yet stable):

I prefer ODFF - with the functions listed on one page in the Wiki it's easy to 
find what you want, whether or not you know the function name.

But this should be a formal decision. Would the User Experience team put this 
on their list of things to look at please ?

Thank you

Function categories should follow those of section 6 in OASIS document.
