No. I don't think we will know that in some cases until we start
discussing possible recommendations. What I think we are saying is that
the category may be able to be dealt with in a relatively short time
compared to other more controversial categories. For an extreme
example, IANA names are much easier than controversial names.

It is not out of the realm of possibility for a category to be
classified as 'simple' now and later be changed to 'more complex' once
we consider it further. Our goal at this point is to try to organize
our work and see what categories may be realistically handled in the
near term and which ones may not. But we won't know for sure until we
dig deeper into each category.
