To you it is a package but to the end user looking at the menu it is a 
category or package grouping; a module is a package; more than one 
module focused on extending the same function is a package group.  The 
end user experience is what matters, not the dev types that know what 
it is supposed to represent.

Yes, I have read your technical explanation before.  It is the end user 
experience I am trying to benefit.  I agree that a module in a package, 
package grouping, category or what ever it is needs to move to Other if 
there is only one in the grouping installed in the users environment.  
I disagree that if I have more than one Taxonomy module package 
installed that the menu should display both of those in the Other 
package grouping rather than the Taxonomy package grouping.
