I read about DRMAA job categories in DRMAA 1.0 specification. I also
read that this feature is implemented by GE DRMAA library.

Are there any use cases with DRMAA job categories? I could not find any.

I have the idea of using DRMAA job categories for pre-configuring
various parallel environments (e.g. mpi). This way complex resource
attributes can be set once and every time a DRMAA job that falls into
this category is submitted for execution, these resource attributes
should not be specified explicitly.

Are there any cons of this case?

Thanks for your time,
