I would choose a different section: packages that only (100%) install  
into the tree, and such that leave "extras" outside, somewhere else.  
For example XeTeX and ConTeXt (Updater, beta) with binaries and  
formats. The latters should belong into the gwTeX tree. XeTeX-doc  
should become member of texmf.local.
