I don't know yet about the groupings, but I do agree that those split
'technology' facets are quite fragile (and that's why I've put them with
a rather low maturity value).

Having them all under 'technology' would make things more consistent,
although it'd give us a huge facet.  Subgrouping in 'protocol' and
'format' could work, although I'm not happy with too many sublevels

It is the same problem we have with the culture:: facet: it has too many
tags to present in a pull-down menu, and we need something better, but I
still don't know what.

I propose we group all the technology things under 'technology' and then
try to figure out how to solve the presentation issue, so that
'culture::' gets happy as well.
