I agree.

Back in the day it was important to have the likes of XSS/SQLi as separate
categories, namely due to the fact they weren't well-known, but the level of
awareness today is far greater than back in 2004. Would it not be more
suitable to have a single parent category such as injection and then have
the sub-categories below depending on how widespread they are?
