I see only one: general usefulness. IMHO the "Filters" menu is getting a
bit out of hand. There are plenty of things there that I never use (the
same applies to brushes/patterns/gradients). Having the extra ones there
isn't free, they get in the way of the people who don't use them (and
slow down startup). I would be in favor of a more "barebones"

- art (filters/artistic, filters/decor, filters/render, many
- image (most of the "filters/enhance" part, "filters/photo", de-noise,
de-shake, color balance)
- maybe a "beginner's pack" with some of the current stuff.
