Good point, I had indeed missed that one!

I guess this shows that it's hard to come up with a restricted list of categories that allow to dispatch technologies in a logical hierarchy. In any case, there is no requirement that a spec only needs to appear in one of these categories, so I prepared an update that adds the spec to all 3 categories, could you check and comment on the pull request?

Thanks for the review!
