There are literally hundreds of them, many of which are just notes to me 
that I need to fix something minor thing (like the category markers here). 
I don't think it'd be useful to expose them all all the time.

Note by the way that if you use the WHATWG version of the spec you can 
click on the defining instances of the category names to get a list of 
sections that reference that category, which is one way to get a list of 
the elements in those categories.
