[wp-hackers] do pages and posts make sense?

According to discussions in several threads many people would like to
use categories for Pages. I think that such a feature would allow more
freedom in the structure of a website. AFAIK it would be easy to
implement it but could result into problems with category specific
templates. Is this true and are there other implications? Why can't
pages belong to categories? Are there any patches or plugins to address
this issue?

Isn't page and post very similar to each other? Probably a blog is just
a specific category. Why not use only one terminology (e.g. "post") and
drop the other (e.g. "page") but add a new category "blog"? Users would
be free in the choice what they want to do with there posts. Several
blogs can easily created just by listing the posts belonging to the
specific blog-category. Additionally this concept would be more easy to
understand and to manage in the user interface than the current one.
What do you think about these issue?
