Why not ${PROVIDER}-${SUBPROVIDER/PROJECT}/${PNVR}? Like
kde-multimedia, gnome-libs etc?

However, I don't like this suggestion at all. I love gentoo-style
categories (they not necessary have to be implemented exactly same
way as in gentoo, of course) e.g. role-based categorization, not
provider-based.
