I initially thought that the "discovery" category should be dropped. 
Is there
an NSE script which isn't really discovering something?  But Brandon
pointed
out that it could just be renamed, and that the name could convey
something
along the lines of "extra information".  I can't really think of a
good name
for it, however.
Perhaps "Informational"?

That, too, seems a bit to broad and (for lack of a better word) obvious for
me.  All NSE scripts are "informational" and are "discovering" something.

So, how am I doing?  Do you have complaints about some of the current
categories?  Do you have any ideas for other new categories?
It looks good.  Using Informational and adding Exploits, you even get a
handy Mnemonic: VICED VIMS (from latin: Grasp with Vigour).

Thanks,
