Thank you for the info. The plugin you suggested is one of the best 
among media categories/taxonomy plugins. However, it lacks some features 
that I would like to include (in core media library):

1. no category filter in "insert media",
2. no upload directly to category,
3. media still organized in 'year-month' order, not according to categories.
