I really don't agree, if you do explicit type lists everywhere you have
to update each and every sites when you modify the enum.

If you make category helpers, like: data, text, init, then you only need
to update the helpers without having to worry about each site. Only if
you add an enum that doesn't fit the existing categories do you need to
do something new.
