Yep, I think that I will advise the string "any" for meaning cross

I'm not sure about that, primarily as I don't want to maintain it.

My thinking so far is that doap:category could be used with a list of
URIs that somebody else manages.

the os and programming-language terms are dubious in this way I suspect,
and would better replaced with specialisations of doap:category.
Unfortunately it also makes it a lot harder to create the doap in the
first place then.
