I agree that Component is not really the right place for these. I
don't think we should continue overloading Component like this. I
think it would be better to add these to a new 'Category'
multi-checkbox list like the other Derby options. I don't think a
drop-down select will work because these categories are not mutually
exclusive, i.e. something can be Newcomer and Performance or High
Value and Regression.

I think he means:

a) Deviation from a standard: JDBC, SQL, DRDA
b) client and embedded driver differences

It would be good to have categories for those that are searchable in
the Search page, for instance instead of tracking them through
DERBY-310 for embedded/client differences.
