"system" and the sys-* categories don't have much of a relationsship,
so that's no argument IMO.

I don't consider that to be a valid reason when looking at the
following numbers:

$ ls -1 /srv/portage/porttree/dev-util/ |wc -l
$ ls -1 /srv/portage/porttree/sys-devel/ |wc -l

~40 packages isn't much for any category, if you really want to
relocate packages you could just as well eliminate the entire category.
