I've been wondering about something similar.  Suppose you have a bunch
of important tasks and a bunch of fluff tasks.  It might be useful to
be able to have the "agenda" item in org-agenda-custom-commands accept
a tags search so that you can use :fluff: on the fluff tasks and
assign a key for everything except :fluff: tasks.  I was going to wait
until after the Lisp syntax for searches was implemented and for me to
get more experience before suggesting it.  In any case, it looks like
the same kind of thing with categories?

Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialism is causing death (decades early;
Jason et al. 2006) and severe suffering, pain, and disability (worse
than nearly all other serious diseases studied; Schweitzer et al.
1995) and grossly corrupting science.  The denialism is worse than it
ever was with even AIDS or MS.
