While I am usually not in favor of adding new categories (I agree with Pav
that what we actually need is a total redesign), I like this idea a lot. As
others have pointed out, the nature of this category suggests that it is a
valid exception to a strict numerical limit of how many ports a new category
needs to include. I also like the suggested name, ports-mgmt.



PS, small disclaimer: I am the author of one of the ports that would be
included in this new category.
