Add-on Warning categories. Warning points calculated on a per category basis

This requirement for us relates to warning points awarded for trading issues and relates to a question I asked here.
If someone has broken our trading rules, we want to be able to give them warning points which accumulate independently of normal warning points, leading to temporary or permanent bans from the trading forums (via restricted usergroups).
The best way I can think of achieving this is to add a warning category.
Our trading warnings would have a 'trading' category which would exclude them from the total warning point calculations for normal warning points, but instead calculate the total trading warning points and award punishments based on those.
This could be used by other people, I expect, not just for classified forums, but for other activities in your forums which require isolated warning points.
Any thoughts on this?
