Thanks for reviewing it, Tom.

Yes, that would be more convenient.  RIF did a customization
to change the name of the 'Products' category (RIF calls it
'Topics').  I generalized the implementation of that customization
but haven't yet incorporated it into the SWD tracker branch.
I will do that.

I'll think about a generalized way to accommodate this.  The tracker
code is (supposed to be) common code shared by all WGs.

(my personal style is to give about 50% of what you wrote and
expect that people would follow the link to learn more, but
you did the work so I'm happy :)  BTW, the term 'slacker tracker'
has another application that's under development so it might
eventually be confusing to repeat it here, despite it's being
used in the tracker docs.)
