That makes sense.
On the other hand, suppose that for some reason "ACME ::
Visibility :: Public" was the only category listed for your software
(or that you had a long list of ACME-specific categories, none of
which are known to PyPI). What response would you expect when you
uploaded it to PyPI? I would want an error, since the resulting
package would not show up in any categories at all.
