Whether we label these resources based on 'type' or 'need-met', it seems that
we would need a shared taxonomy of terms for interoperability.  To date we have
worked on the assumption of types, and this bug seeks to expand the taxonomic
list of types to address the types of content identified to address various
user needs. 

Given the diverse combinations of user needs that may exist, I fear developing
a common taxonomic list from that perspective would prove extremely complex,
but I have not embarked upon that thought exercise. David, do you have any
ideas here?
