i'm not sure if that is supposed to be correct. this is from doc/spec/hal-

  <literal>info.category</literal> (string)
<entry>example: storage.cdrom</entry>
<entry>The prominent capability describing what the device is</entry>

googling for info.category examples, though, reveals only simple words 
for it on linux (volume, storage...). a linuxism, maybe?

i'll try to get our hal behave as in linux, and we'll see
