    Well, OTOH there's more to science than maths and physics. ;-) 

Yes, sure.  But collection-science should remain for "hard" sciences, I
feel pretty sure.  That's just how it is commonly used in English.

    a collection of packages related to linguistics, phonetics, law and
    the humanities would be of interest. 

I don't object to having a collection-humanities.

However, I have to reiterate that I think this splitting consumes an
awful lot of time for an awful small gain.  In fact, I rather think it
will cause more problems (missing packages) than it will solve.  People
always want smaller downloads, but they also always want the packages
they use, because of course *those* are critically important :).  Anyway ...
