Missing categories in Google’s Directory

I was checking for the Free Content category on DMOZ.org and I saw it’s updated. I also tried the check the google version. Big surprise! The category does not exist in google’s dmoz copy.

I’m not sure if this is on purpose, but it’s most likely that google is also moderating the biggest moderated directory on the net. Hehe that’s a good one.

See it yourself (I’m not sure for how long this links will be alive)
Dmoz link : updated around June 4th
Google’s Link: doesn’t exist as of June 5th

Also I’ve found if you search for url that exist on dmoz’s certain category, google returns a result but the link is simply for oh for.
See the first link.

Last notes: Yahoo’s directory doesn’t have the category too. I kind of understand it since the category is under Business branch and it’s a paid service for yahoo to appear under that branch.
