Here the main issue is that bug categories correspond to projects, but 
this mapping is awkward when it comes to N-L projects.

The bugzilla categories corresponding to, say, "IT", (the Italian N-L 
project) aren't supposed to be used for bug reports about the Italian 
localization, since the l10n component is the right one for them (and 
the language name is used as tag, like: [IT]: Wrong translation of 
"Insert Page Break").

The only proper use for those components is internal case-tracking among 
project members, and the large majority of N-L projects surely never 
used it this way, or bug reporting about the N-L websites.

So if all these categories were dropped it wouldn't probably be a huge 
loss, unless any N-L groups are actively using them. Dropping the "IT" 
bug category surely wouldn't harm, we never really used it.
