If we really need to list some companies/organization let's go for a  
simple list of names with no categories.
We could also follow the opposite approach, just mention some categories  
without any specific name.

Afterall is not the aim of the charter to identify the specific  
organization to be contacted
(while it could make sense to have an indication of which type of  
organization to consider).
