That sounds like the intended use of the job category.  The idea was to
provide an abstract handle that the application can use, like "mpi",
that the administrator can concretely map to a set of command-line
switches.  This scheme enables portability because the application only
has to know about the "mpi" category, as opposed to a bunch of
DRM-specific switches.
