Each section of a site listed in DMOZ separately
When it's legitimate, when it is not?

Apart of many serious sites I administrate, I own a private homepage with separate sections about my multiple hobbies.

A few of these sections are listed in DMOZ in appropriate categories, for example 'hobby1' is listed in Arts/hobby1/Personal_Pages and 'hobby 2' in Arts/hobby2/Performers/J and alternative language versions are listed in according categories in other language.

Main page of the site would fit to category 'Society/People/Personal_Homepages/J' but I'm not sure I'm allowed to submit it there, because this site has already multiple DMOZ listings and I've read in DMOZ rules that it's not allowed to do and punished with removing all listings of the site in question from DMOZ.

However, all these listings are legitimate from the point of view of the categories they are listed. 'Hobby1' is entirely unrelated with 'hobby2', while according parts of my site provide unique content for each one, so it's logical that they are listed simultanously in separate categories. The same could be told about parallel listing of two different language versions.

I wonder where is the bound, where DMOZ editors would find it legitimate that parts of a site are listed in more than one category, and where it's deemed a violation of DMOZ rules.
