What are the chart types that are missing?  Or do you find that the
handling of categorical data is generally lacking?

Charting and plotting are quite related, and I think you might get
better traction trying to add the exact chart and axis types that you
need to an existing package rather than starting yet another plotting
package for Python. :)
