Letting time determine whether there really is a new category, and if so
what it is, makes sense.  But the term 'Freestyle' to me implies something
more specific, ie that it has no structure/rationale rather than that one
hasn't yet been determined.  It's a bit like the difference between atheist
and agnostic.
