My guess is it's a lot of infrastructure, changes to
maemo.org/packages/ and an effort to persuade Nokia to ship it in a
disabled state (and update cycles are slow).

It also doesn't help users browsing at http://maemo.org/downloads/ either.

I think the best plan is that which has already been outlined: common
icons, descriptions etc.
